Epic is overrated

Seems like a lot of people who are backpacking these days want to do a trip that is truly epic.  We're not sure what that means, but it seems to have something to do with being a trip that you can brag about later. 


We've found that hiking into areas you love because you love them is a lot more rewarding than hiking to see if you can.  And it vastly increases the odds of you ever doing it again.  We'd vote for lovely, instead of epic.
