My wife and I are collecting one backpacking trip in each state. The further into the wilderness and away from the road, the better. I love stopping for a good lunch experiencing the wilderness with a view or next to a stream to cool off in. A good pair of sunglasses with Xperio UV polarized lenses cut down the brightness and make the colors around me come alive. The next key to a great trip is finding a microbrewery to celebrate the victory of our accomplishment. The final leg of a great journey is returning home to our two dogs, always greeting us with endless enthusiasm!
