West Fork of Oak Creek
Great pics. If you can ever swing it, I highly, highly recommend doing the entire canyon from top to bottom. That requires a shuttle or two cars, but it's definitely worth it. The upper sect...

Mountain Laurel Design FS exodus
I used an Exodus FS for my 5-month CDT thru-hike. The pack was, by far, my least favorite piece of gear. What I didn't like: - The pack squeaked loudly and persistently, with almost every ste...
