Ascent Trip Report

I've actually been up Minsi and Tammany a bunch of times, but wanted to save adding it for a longer trip. CCFlyer needed to test out his kit for a long hike he was doing on the Pacific Crest Trail in Washington State, so we felt a nice hike on the uneven Appalachian Trail in PA would be a good test. Dropped a car at Wind Gap, and parked at Water Gap. Totals came out to 14.92 miles, 7 hours 12 minutes, 2,215 elevation gain. Tagged Minsi, Lunch Rocks and Wolf Rocks. CCFlyer was a man on a mission, and had me huffing and puffing to keep up!
