2015 — What an outstanding year for backpacking and hiking. This photo gallery has highlights from these very enjoyable and beautiful adventures. Trips began in March with an overnight backpacking hike in Brown County Indiana, where I live, and included trips to Utah, Wisconsin, Illinois, Alberta, British Columbia, North Carolina and then back to Indiana.
