Worth the Sweat - Delaware Water Gap - circa 1970

Delaware Water Gap Backpack - Both Sides - Circa 1970

So worth the sweaty, hard climb in 85+ degrees, July weather! Just imagine the breezes blowing across our damp backs as we admired the views!

Those great kids could definitely handle the hiking but they couldn't carry very much pack weight at 20% of their body weight so we counselors carried all the "surplus" group gear weight. I'm sure all those trips back then contributed a bit to my current spinal problems (insert smiley face!).

That's me in the green in the middle.
