No, Kay, Desolation does not require bear canisters. We plan to take 3 nights - the first night to be at Richardson, the 2nd Velma to be on the safe side and cuz we need to put it on the first night for the Desolation permit, then maybe Suzie or aloha. I'm looking forward to going over Dicks Pass. Went over Phipps for the first time a month ago on the tahoe to yosemite trail, and loved it.

Larraby, just do what you can, find an easy one to start and build your confidence, good luck!

Chris, I did that section a few years back to finish the TRT, I think we took 3 nights? It may have been 3 days, 2 nights. Nice area, hope you have a great time! Does Desolation require canisters for overnight now? I like to avoid them if I can, they are so bulky!

Excited about a Barker to Echo backpack next week (going w someone finishing the TRT - so far she's done day hikes to do the rest) - bringing my new Ursack(rather than the cumbersome bear canister I usually carry) so will be going pretty light, the way I like it!

Gotta do it! I have not hiked since having an "incident" and being put on blood pressure medication in November. My doctor said I'm clear, but I'm just scared.

Haven't been around much, sorry! It is great to hear about everyone's hikes, though. We haven't been out for about 3 weeks due to some kind of nasty bug that I caught, but do hope to get back out in the next week or two at most (lots of family stuff coming up... like every late summer/ early fall for us) so probably hitting either the Emma Carlin trails here in WI, or traveling north - depends on our mood of the day :D We do still need to finish the longest of the Emma Carlin trails - we began and got about half way through and an unexpected thunderstorm showed up. Luckily, we had just arrived at a connector trail that put us on another trail that took us within a mile of the parking lot, so that worked out pretty well.

Sorry about the fires, Loveaquablue, that sounds scary and awful! We had a lot of smoke last year from the Rim fire, and it was hard to breathe for about a month....hope you are taking care.

Is that hike out of the smoke? I'm guessing it is...hope it's wonderful!

Hi all, haven't posted here in awhile but I hike a lot (well did) around here.

We semi-retired in Leavenworth, Wa in the mountains and if you google the area we have been surrounded by fires for the last 3 weeks, after cleaning ash out of pool that took two weeks, the smoke in air has kept me doing my Nia Dance class inside instead of hiking and I miss it!!! Did a short walk by river this morning, but I don't call that hiking...

So next hike...hopefully soon but if not before end of month taking Lady of the Lake to Stehekin at the end of Lake Chelan and hiking there.

Had a nice week of camping and hiking, we made it to Longley lake, Chocolate Peak and the Mammoth Crest, as well as a technical climb of Crystal Crag and the ridgline....lots of fun, lots of sun and a few scrapes, bumps and bruises...

Decided Oldman Lake trail for this weekend. Not an extremely strenuous one as it is only about 15 miles round trip and a 1900 foot elevation gain, but we will be able to drop a line in and do some fishing which is always nice. Hope everyone has a great weekend

We'll be headed out soon to the Easter Sierra again, my boyfriend and his friend are going to give Mt Humphries another try, I'll probably hike up part way, not sure I can keep up, and also not sure I'm up for the more technical part.

Should be good weather though...

We are planning a hike up the beautiful Ptarmigan Tunnel Trail in Glacier Nat'l park. It just opened this week and we are hoping that the snow has cleared enough to make passage safe. Don't mind having to cross snow, as long as it isn't too risky. Last week we got within 1/4 mile of our destination, after crossing 4 separate glaciers, only to be stopped that close by 2 extremely dangerous snow traps that we weren't prepared to tackle. :( Do you all share pictures? I would love to see where everyone else hikes.

My plan at the moment is to walk to work this week, I'm supposed to be off Thurs and Fri to help the guys shuttle down south, but the weather has put a dent in their plans, so we'll see what's up tonight! Yesterday I walked home in a thunderstorm, that was exciting!

Joffre Lakes
I feel so much better I was able to hike and find two geocaches on Saturday.
Joffre lakes -- a 11 km trail with a 400 m gain to reach the high 1600m high point.
began at 12:30 arrived at the far end of the third lake at 4 where I found my second cache turned around and arrived at the car at 6 pm.

We did down to Phantom Ranch and up from the South Rim GC last April, it was great! I did lose my "life is good" hat though, blew right off in the wind. A rim to rim sounds fun.

TrailTrodder, enjoy your trip and the new tent! My boyfriend had a great time repairing our tents from our last trip (the base camp tent I like to call the circus tent, since it's so BIG, and our backpack tent), I'm guessing he may have liked a new tent as well instead of spending all that time in repair mode!

Hubs and I are contemplating a rim-to-rim-to-rim hike at the Grand Canyon in September. We would camp at Cottonwood Junction for a couple of nights. He has already done the south to north rim trip and is familiar with the territory. Magnificent scenery there!

Welcome to all the new members. Great team with some fantastic hiking information and stories that will motivate you for sure. ......... Exactly one month from now I'll be backpacking in the Rawah Wilderness Area in North Central Colorado. There's a group of guys I hike with and we're known has the "ole geezer hiking club". Every year we plan a week long backpacking trip where we hike in on a monday and hike out on friday or saturday. We meet and choose a wilderness area in Colorado and since we live in Kansas, we never pick one over a days drive. Last time out, we had two hailstorms come through and busted up my tent pretty bad. In trying to replace one of the poles, I found out that although they still make the same tent, they've changed the style of the poles and they won't work with my tent. ........ Now I had a great excuse to buy new equipment. Just bought me a Koppen Brut tent yesterday and I believe it's going to work out fine. Set it up this evening and it was simple and fast. Gained 2 lbs. in pack weight, but the gained space will be worth it. ..... Now, the countdown begins.

Hey everyone I am still here just so confined to the kitchen and feeding 150 + mouths everyday three times a day and so I can not get out to walk or hike. But this weekend I am off.... And today I went for a small hike to the beach with Dalhousie on my afternoon break - it felt real good to get out and hike even if it was only for an hour

It's hard to beat southern Utah, I like Snow Canyon (for camping) and Zion (for hiking), also, Grand Canyon is pretty spectacular as well. If you are looking for more deserty desert, Death Valley has a lot of nice hiking.

Hello Everybody! I'm new to the thread but reading about all your wonderful has me motivated to get out even more around my neck of the woods. Last weekend I hiked to one of my favorite places, Suntop Lookout near Mt. Rainier. This week I am hoping to make room in my schedule to get to the mountain itself. I love the hikes around Sunrise on Mt. Rainier, the scenery is unbeatable! I would love to get in a desert hike this fall, any suggestions?

Thanks Kayotic! This was my first overnight and it was great! I had a smaller load (16 pounds including water) and my fiancee carried the bulk (38 pounds including water). We went up a different trail than we originally planned, but hiked almost 10 miles in 7 hours the first day and finished up with a short 2 mile jaunt to the car the next morning. It went swimmingly and I can't wait for our next excursion!

Welcome to the team MBL, I take it this won't be your first overnight? Have a nice trip, whichever option you take!

I'll be hitting the trails to work this morning, it's cooled down (thankfully, it cools way down at night around here!) so should be a pleasant walk in! I have a personal training scheduled at the gym tonight, so it will be a long day!

Hi, I'm new to the group, and my fiancee and I are hoping to do an overnight hike along the AT this weekend. We're hoping to start in Cheshire, Massachusetts, climb Mt. Greylock (the highest peak in the state), and then emerge in North Adams the next day. He wants me to have a bigger bag first, but I think we can manage one night with the bags we have. If we don't hike, then I want to tackle our local rail trail (the Ashuwillticook trail), which will be 22 miles round trip. Whatever we do, I just want to be outside!

Yep, you're right KAYOTIC. Although the Konza is an hour away, it seems like I'm out there at least once a week. I love the prairie hikes. I love leading tours as a docent and watching others enjoy the tallgrass prairie experience. ............. Tomorrow we'll be hiking near the historical town of Council Grove which is 90 miles away. We'll get an early start and maybe hit the Konza on the way back.

Have fun on all those upcoming hikes! I wish I could help you out on the Colorado or Oregon coast hiking, but have no info on those! I've driven the Oregon coast, but we just looked at the lighthouses and shoreline, didn't get in any hiking.

Just got back from a week and a half in the Eastern Sierra, we did some hiking/climbing/backpacking, and a longish mountain bike ride! Great trails in that area...

MOM4HOCKEY, The OR Coast has some great hike options. Do you know what part of the coast you'll be visiting or are you trying to decide?

I'll be vacationing on the Oregon Coast this summer. I've been before, but never hiking at the parks in the area. I've heard there are some beautiful State & National Parks, with great hiking trails. Anyone have any info. for me? Thanks !! emoticon emoticon

This year we'll be hiking in the Rawah Wilderness Area in North Central Colorado. Anyone ever hiked this particular area? Three years ago we hiked the Comanche Peak Wilderness Area near there.

Currently, we hike close(ish) to home. We are working on a lot of the different parts of the Ice Age trail and portions of Kettle Moraine State forest in WI. Our hikes are generally between 2-6 miles for right now. We are looking forward to longer ones soon.

What I am REALLY excited about is next May. NORWAY!!!! We were supposed to go this August, but it didn't work out, so I planned out an extended trip for May, instead, and plan to spend as much time hiking there as possible. We will just be in the Oslo area this time, but we want to get back and hit quite a few rather known and maybe even a few lesser known hikes throughout the country.

Went up a new trail Sunday... Days Canyon out of right fork of Hubble Canyon. It was great. A stream next to (or on top of) the trail, a breeze and enough hard work to really sweat and get tired. And absolutely beautiful meadows at the top with trees scattered. Will be back soon (before it all dries out :) Today after a short work day heading back up Rock Canyon for a couple of hours.

Hiking a trail at Tenoroc Wildlife Management Area in the Lakeland Florida. It's a trail that was built and is maintained by the local Florida Trail Association. I actually put some hours in on part of the building and since retiring have put in more maintenance hours.

It's not a challenging trail by northern standards. Only going about seven miles. By Florida standards, it's easy to moderate. What will put it in the moderate to strenuous category will be the weather. We're starting at 8:30 -- hopefully will be done before temp hits the 90's mark.

Doing it with other members of our Florida Trail group as well as people from our Meetup.com group.
