Backpacking on the Laurel Highlands Trail

May 16-18, 2008
Organized by: Zach Haas

This backpacking adventure took place in the Laurel Highlands in mid-May, a season notorious for mixed weather. The group was fortunate in this regard, only receiving rain once and not for the whole trip. Mid-May is also the time that rhododendrons begin to bloom, as the group can attest. The trail itself proved easy for the group despite the treacherous looking elevation profile. A word to any group that chooses to do this hike in the future: reserve the shelters.
