On Assignment: Off to Backpack Gaspesie in Canada

Taking off in a few minutes to depart on an epic adventure in the North country.  The Gaspe Peninsula to be exact, in the far reaches of Quebec.  First time in Canada for me.  My friend and I are backpacking for three days at Parc National de Gaspesie, a park with diverse ecosystems, wildlife galore (including the only caribou herd south of the St. Lawrence River and over 150 species of birds!), and the towering peaks of the International Appalachian Trail.  We’re on assignment for Backpacker Magazine; our experience will be captured in our writing and photos.   We’ll also be shooting a video – a pilot episode of an adventure series – stay tuned!  Gotta run!  And thank you Backpacker and Columbia Sportswearfor all your support!
