Notes from the Trail

2006

2006 was a great year for hiking and backpacking.  Summer brought weekend after weekend of beautiful weather to Western Washington this year, and the trails were in great shape until the fall storms hit hard.  I hiked all over Western Washington, journeyed to the Oregon side of the Columbia Gorge, and ventured onto the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains, and it's impossible to say which was my favorite hike of the year.   I loved them all.
