Cranberry Wilderness Backpacking

Written by , Posted in backpacking

Spent three days backpacking in West Virginia’s Cranberry Wilderness. It rained a couple inches over the course of the trip but we brought a little extra whiskey, managed to stay dry, trek about 20 miles, catch trout by our campsites, and get fires going both nights to warm up and dry out. post hike routine of sheetz + 800mg of ibuprofen felt extra good. New Platypus Gravityworks filter was awesome, as was the last minute decision to bring a second tarp.
