This last weekend I traveled to Kearsarge Pass along with some of my Hiking the Wild team members, Keith McFatridge and Steve Lee. Keith served as our trail blazer and all around wilderness expert while Steve made this his very first backpacking trip. This trip was no joke-covering some 14 miles and 9000 feet of elevation change over 48 hours. But as Steve’s mom told him, “You can’t call yourself a man unless you do something like this.” Watch the expedition up and across Kearsarge Pass and back again. See highlights from the adventure July 28-30, 2017.
