Almost time to kick up your feet by the fire and enjoy some tasty meals in the backcountry! Where will #youradventure take you this weekend? 📸: @alexiamaddux
If you happen to be in the Boulder area tonight, be sure to check out Backpacker's Pantry Amabassador Sunny Stroeer (@sstroeer) speaking at Neptune Mountaineering (@neptunemountaineering). The 812-mile Hayduke Trail may just be the most obscure and challenging long trail in the US; Backpacker Magazine describes it as covering "the harshest yet most sublime territory in the Lower 48”. It is a complicated, largely off-trail route across the Colorado Plateau in Utah and Northern Arizona, linking six National Parks and Monuments along the way.
The masterminds behind the Hayduke issue a stern warning to prospective hikers: “Because of the extremely challenging and dangerous nature of this route, you must be a very experienced desert backpacker in peak physical condition before attempting any section of the Hayduke.” In spring 2018, photographer and record-setting mountain athlete Sunny Stroeer set out to hike the entire length of the Hayduke - as her first ever thruhike, and in a fraction of the time that it typically takes. Join us on May 16 (7:15-9pm) for an evening of entertaining stories, captivating imagery and lessons learned from a solo month walking across one of the most beautiful desert landscapes the US has to offer. 📸: @sstroeer
