Gilmore Lake TripHi! Welcome to the website! All of my friends and family enjoy hearing about my backpacking trips and seeing the pictures taken along the way. I thought that I could share these things with a larger audience if we put them on the web. There are now over 85 trips posted now.

The Avid Backpackers website is not only designed for all of those interested in backpacking, but also people that just enjoy seeing photos of and reading about backpacking trips. Visit the trips section to see all trips listed by area. If you prefer a more chronological account click here.
