Even though the backpacking trip is two weeks away, countdown has begun and equipment check is taking place. The Rawah Wilderness beckons and I shall answer.

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.

Our hiking group is meeting this weekend to lock down a trail to hike for our annual, backpacking trip. We know we'll be hiking in the Rawah Wilderness Area. ......... Counting the days is making it seem longer!

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...

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.

I've been just kinda following washes so far, not venturing TOO far from home..I'm very new to this, I walk 5K 3-4 days a week, and 2 miles, 2 days a week..
With my health history (2 previous strokes, MS..stage II hypertension) I'm still a little uneasy going too far just in case I run into problems.


With that being said though, wee have a number of 'established' trails within the preserve that I have been looking at doing...and I'm currently trying to build up my stamina, and strength to do them..
one of which is a 5K called Teutonia Peak Trail..the entrance is about 20 miles up the road from us with an elevation, at the top of the peak, at 5755ft. It's ALL uphill so I'm not quite there yet to complete this one...

what I want to eventually be able to do one of these days is the entire 'loop' called wild Horse Canyon..It's approx. 19km. I've driven it many times...sooo beautiful out that way. There is also a trail that cuts right through it (Mid Hills to Hole-In-the-Wall trail)..
With so many trails and possibilities out here, those that are both 'established/marked, and those that aren't...I'm excited that I'm finally doing this and not letting my health problems keep me down..

There's a group of 5 of us ( the "old geezer hiking club" ) that every year we plan a week long backpacking trip to a wilderness area. We take the trip in early august and I just got word that we'll be hiking August 11th - 16th. Wilderness area to be selected when we all gather to discuss it. We usually pick an area in Colorado, because we don't want to spend a lot of time driving.

Jetetser,
Thanks for the links. I knew about Rabbit Films but not the other one. The last town I lived in NH was Deering (between Weare & Hillsboro). When I went for walks, I would end up on the top of the local small mountain. I could see Mount Monadnock from there. It was an awesome view in the fall. At certain times of the year, there were beds of Lady Slipper's.

Hope you enjoy your hike.

What a great commute! Enjoy!

Years ago, my ex-brother-in-law got to ski to his job. That was another great commute.

When I lived in Hawaii and worked in a gift shop on the ocean, sometimes I walked to work next to the ocean.

Utah has some awesome scenery & hiking. I love the earth red's, though if you're near Salt Late City, I associate that with black mountains. Got to visit Utah in 2000, 2001, and 2004. You have a very beautiful state with great hiking. Enjoy!

Nice work getting out and hiking, team! I've been doing a lot of walking, we have an extensive trail system in the regional park behind the house, and I love to just put on my i-pod and go. Lots of blooming and birds and animals out this time of year!

We have had great weather out here in Utah lately! I have been heading up a number of times to Rock Canyon, super easy access from Provo. It is a popular climbing area, especially the mouth of the canyon. I have been hiking up higher and saw signs of moose but no acutal Bullwinkles. Did see turkeys the other day. Today I ended up on a 4 whl drive road and came upon the remnants of a snow avalanche that had crossed the road and spilled out to the sides where the road was. I climbed up on it and ended up turning around rather than cross the path of the avalanche am I not brilliant? no need to cross an avalanche path so why do it? It had been high 60s the day before a bit lower down and I dont know what that does to stability, plus I am a chicken.
I have had some things on my mind and the endorphins I have been getting from my hikes lately are a necessity for me now. ...
Eileen I can feel the effects of sugar sand hiking (in my mind) whew! Love hearing about others' hikes

Got out Thursday for a three hour hike in "sugar sand". Depth of sand varied from 2" to 6"+ plus part of trail shared by horses. Hard to hike in but a great workout. I had my full pack on. I was hiking in a part of Florida called the ridge. It's the only part of the state that was never under water.

Today, I did a six to seven mile hike. Hike itself was not challenging but even though we started before 9am, the large group had to stop a lot for slower people. Hike didn't get done until after noon. By then, temps were in the 80's. Some of hike in shade. But still, I was very glad to be there.

How far are you from Burlington VT? I met my husband when I worked at a camp on the NY side of Lake Champlain (south of Plattsburg). I was 15 going on 16. Could see the lights of Burlington, VT. When we got married almost five years later when I was 20 going on 21, we did stop tin Burlington. Have been married for over 45 years.

Had a great weekend. Kayaked on Saturday at Rainbow Springs, FL. It's an incredibly beautiful area. On Sunday, hiked about six miles on a part of the Florida Trail that I hadn't been on before. Where I hiked was near Ocala FL. It has some hills but probably nothing to prepare me for my planned hike in GA. Had great weather for both day with temps starting in the upper 60's and getting into 70's. Was glad we started early in the day today as it was getting on the warm side by time hike done.

Glad you got out. Also glad you got snow. In the years between 1980 & 2001, I made it to California and some of the other western states. During 2001 & part of 2002, I lived full time in an RV. Most of the years, I was around California, drought was a major issue. So again, glad you got snow.

I read Bill Bryson's book about hiking the AT, but that's about as close as I have gotten to that trail! Sorry I can't help you there! But have a great trip.

We got out skiing again today (I took off early from work...) it was much better than this past weekend, now that the snow has set up. We XC so need a bit of a hard pack to make it good. This last storm dumped a bunch of snow, which we really needed here in the Sierra, it's nice to see, and fun to play in.

Is anyone familiar with hiking in the Amicalola Falls State Park in Georgia? I'll be hiking there soon. Will be hiking in the Inn and on the next day hiking to Springer Mountain where the Appalachian Trail starts. Coming from flatland curious of how much elevation gain it all is.

Thanks!

There isn't much in the way of hiking in the Chicagoland area. There are some small forest preserves around us not they aren't very long hikes. We end up driving south to Starved Rock, east to Indiana Dunes or north to the Kettle Moraine to real hiking. I'm glad it's starting to warm up because I've missed our Sunday hikes with the dogs!

Craziness - that would describe me- I went out walking and hiking again for hours and hours yesterday. Some was easy walking in the city of Vancouver and then I went back to the rugged trails of Lighthouse Park where I climbed hills and descended mountains... then because I missed a couple of caches I redid parts that I had past by mistake. Noni was so tired near the end that she stayed in the car as I rehiked.
Not only that before we went home I stopped at another Park and walked around it as well enjoying the scenery - it was amazing...
Today my body is screaming at me - don't push it so much in one day - do more everyday not all at once..
You know I will not listen ....

Determination - it sounds you are like me in this -- once I start I have to keep going -- must keep on keepin to the top or trail end. And the satisfaction of getting to the top is worth the struggles. Well done I look forward to hear about more of your adventures .

Would love to see all the birds! and I had a similar book recommended to me for this area 50 hikes in 50 miles around Salt Lake. I might get it. Today I just wanted to be outside but didnt make super specific plans and then after going up Rock Canyon (again) I stood looking at the Squaw Peak trail cut off... someone had told me it took her 3 hrs to get up there. So I started up... and up! 2700 ft gain in 3.4 miles. Snow - packed and mud in some spots and enough snow to punch through to your thigh in spots. (I had these chain things in my pack thank heavens) As I got up there I started to tell myself this is good, this is far enough and then kept on keepin on to the top. What a view. It took me a long time coming down too with the snow and mud. Sooo worth it, tired but feeling the endorphins still :) posted a pic of the view.

Squamish Estuary who knew it was so large and had different trails almost like separate parks. In the morning I went out with Dalhouise hiking the newer section on the west side of the channels for about two hours - came home ate lunch and then went out again with Noni and Dalhouise for another two and half hours. The second section is on the eastern side of the river and channel closer to town and the first developed.
Birds were there but not as many as I would expect - it was warm but the wind certainly was cooler when we first started out but we warmed up quickly as we moved.
Almost surprised a naked lady...
I was taking some pictures - talking to Noni and then walked a few steps and came unto an opening / beach area and there was a lady standing with a towel around herself and her clothes in a pile nearby. Was she naked maybe not -- but I think so.
It is too cold to swim - but I think she was sun bathing - trying to get a jump on her tan.
She seemed to be embraced - but who knows..
By the time we returned home Noni was getting sore again so today's length was just the right hike for her..

4 to 5 km loop was the loop Noni and I walked together - not sure about the distance of the morning trail

Enjoy exploring with your new book, Marty!

I've been walking more lately, trying to keep my fitbit happy with at least 10K steps a day, so besides walking to work when I can, I've been walking around the neighborhood and enjoying the nice weather and all the blooms! Spring is certainly on it's way here. emoticon

Good job - twelve miles is impressive especially since it probably wasn't on level ground. emoticon

I have this book "Best Hikes and Walks of Southwestern British Columbia" and my goal is to hike as many of these hikes as possible in 2014
This hike is listed as easy - OK it was easy but very long - Noni and Dalhouise and I started at Park Royal and walked all the way to the Capilano Lake and Cleveland Dam and over to the hatchery and then back to the parked car.
Noni pedometer read 25,000 steps - about 12 miles and it took us about six and half hours.
-- OK we stopped to take pictures and I looked for Geo caches and of course just to look around and enjoy the scenery.

You're hiking to work and I'm doing a work hike. I so some volunteer trail work with the local Florida Trail Association. Tomorrow, I'll be hauling brush. I'd rather do that than lopping. Will admit my favorite job is painting blazes.
Have fun on your commute.

Oral history can be a tricky thing...people remember what they will, and forget what they will too!

I'll be "hiking" to work tomorrow, on the trail behind the house!
