90 Second Escape: Backpacking at South Mountains

Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.

Today’s 90-Second Escape: Backpacking at South Mountains

This weekend, our GetBackpacking! program graduated another class of backpackers under sunny skies with cool-to-cold temperatures at South Mountains State Park. Another batch of tentative newbies when they entered the program four weeks ago, another batch of competent and happy backpackers when they reluctantly shed their packs after three days and two nights in the woods.

Check out the slideshow of our graduation trip, then keep an eye out on the GetHiking! Triangle Meetup page for information on our next round of GetBackpacking! classes, which begin in late January.
