      after summiting Mt Davis (Pa) earlier in the day, we took a nice country drive down St Rt 219 to Backbone Mountain. Near Backbone Mountain, I got lost many times, stopped following my bad directions, and asked for a local’s help. He pointed us in a better direction, and …….well we got there! Finding a one lane access road, while going around curvy roads in the woods took some time and backtracking.
      The hike to the top, is about a mile continuously uphill. Not too stressful. It was a cool, overcast day, and we didn’t see anyone else on the Mountain. I carried our 16 month old son up the hill in our papoose backpack, and he fell asleep in the carrier on the way back down.
