Consider getting off the beaten path to where few venture. Your rewards include more opportunities for unique content, plenty of time for scouting your composition, and already being in place for magic hour light and magnificent dark skies. (Frequent wildlife sightings are often an additional bonus.)
In this talk, Sherry Beltramini Pincus will focus on presenting different approaches to backcountry travel including:
• day hiking from established base camps
• hut to hut backpacking
• extended backpack
• off-trail backpacking
Sherry will also discuss backpacking equipment from the perspective of including camera gear with equipment required for safe remote travel. Dealing with choices due to weight restrictions and traveling safely with your camera gear will all be covered.
This talk will be an introduction for those unfamiliar with backpacking but will also be an opportunity for experienced backpackers to expand their approach. There is something for everyone who enjoys exploring and is willing to hike, as well as for armchair adventurers.
