PCT for Stars

3 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain • 1 night

Just wanted to take advantage of a small window of rain free time and catch some stars. We slept under the Big Dipper and the Milky Way and got some nice photos. This morning, we hiked out in a little bit of spit, but the rain held off until we were on our way home.

Timberline to Night Spot to Zig Zag Overlook

7.5 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain • 1 night

Had a chance to go out with our son and a few friends. The friends cancelled, so we spent a windy night (put some rocks in our tent) with our adult son and then hiked in the morning. Lots of stars and The Milky Way.

Timberline Trail

46 miles of hiking • 11500' elevation gain • 3 nights

Started late Friday night on the Timberline Trail and went clockwise for the first time. Last four have been counter clockwise. There were a fair amount of people doing the same loop. Great weather & very few bugs but the river crossings always get me.

A quick overnight on the PCT, then a zip up to Palmer and back down. Well, not exactly a zip, but I only crawled in two spots.

My son was interested in hiking where there was a view. Well, we were in a cloud the entire time. It was nice regardless.

Just wanted to catch some stars and this was Plan B. We were headed to Badger Creek Wilderness when we decided to switch plans. It turned into a lovely night.

Devil's Kitchen

6.5 miles of hiking • 4250' elevation gain • 1 night

Spent the night a out of boundary of Timberline, continued up the dirt to past Palmer where we crossed and followed footprints up towards Hood. Our sights kept getting loftier. First goal was the base of Crater Rock, then a little higher, the shoot for 10,000". We made it to 10,150". I have always wanted to get higher on Hood and yesterday was the day.

Climbers Trail

5 miles of hiking • 2750' elevation gain • 1 night

Once again, we started hiking at 9pm, spent the night and continued up to Palmer this morning. Glissading down 1,000' has to be one of the funnest things I've done in a long time. After watching countless people slide down the chute, I switched my backpack so it wouldn't drag and went for it. The GPS clocked me at 8 and 9 mph. Whooo!

Another late start. We carved out a little spot because there was a group by the campground. It turned out to be the scout troop our son Eagled with.
