Trillium Lake Christmas Eve to Christmas Day

6 miles of hiking • 500' elevation gain • 1 night

Hiked into Trillium Lake with our entire adult family of five carrying firewood. My daughter and I did the daunting task of locating the fire pit by the pavillion. We succeeded and had a wonderful fire with bench seating around.

Kings Mountain

5 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •

The first out of six other people was Larry from Grocery Outlet. Pretty cold and windy at the top, but what I love about this hike is that it's the best bang for your buck hike. Gone from the house for six hours and got a lot of elevation in five miles.

Paradise Park

15.5 miles of hiking • 3500' elevation gain • 1 night

Fourth time this year to Paradise Park, third time up the Kiwanas Trail (778), first time completely snow free. Windy and cold. We were glad to have layers and raincoats (for warmth, but lousy as pillow).

Cooper Spur Backpack for the Third Time in 2016

8.5 miles of hiking • 3250' elevation gain • 1 night

Got a late start on the trail ~ as in 5:30pm, but had a bug free and more important, WIND - FREE and sand free backpack. There were three other parties camped near the shelter. One trio was heading from Timberline around the mountain. They looked like hearty souls and will likely succeed.

White River Canyon Father's Day Backpack

3.5 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain • 1 night

Father's Day backpack with our three adult kids. Full moon going into the Summer Solstice. Short and SUPER SANDY because the wind kicked up a lot. Our backyard looks like a triage area with all the stuff drying out after being hosed down.

Beacon Rock and Lower Hamilton

Gorgeous day with my son. Years ago, when he was in Sea Scouts, they would dock nearby and hike to the top of Beacon Rock.

Cooper Spur Shelter

8 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain • 1 night

We handed out candy to all moms (three) on our hike up on Mother's Day and dog treats to two dogs. EXTREME sustained wind at the shelter. The shelter on the Timberline Trail is full of snow, but it may have been better to sleep on the snow inside rather than have our tents pelted with sand and wind. Gorgeous morning!

White River Canyon

3.5 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain • 1 night

Starry, starry night on snow, but the sand blew the whole hike in. Opted to stay low instead of heading up higher and to more exposed areas. Watched climbers on Hood in the early morning hours.
