Re: One night backpacking trip in Late April suggestions

Indian Heaven will certainly still be snowed in; according to the sensor at Spencer Meadow (3400' elev) there is 66 inches of snow.

I'm not as familiar with the Oregon-based locations that you listed.

Re: Lewis River Trail

This is timely, thank you! Heading out there at the end of April.

If you went downstream from Curly Cr Falls, then it is probably Miller Cr Falls.

Re: Meal planning for extended backpacking (no resupply)

For my 9-day 122 mile trek last summer, I utilized the recipes from Andrew Skurka and just went with it. At the end, I was carrying too much food; but only because I didn't eat as much as I thought I would. For a week long hike, the high-calories don't really matter. What does matter is ensuring you...

Re: Information on Edible Plants?

Awesome, thank you for the variety of options. I appreciate it. I'm mostly looking to learn more about the plants around us, identifying them and if edible, of course consuming. However, not really into survival-style, just more of a general learning and expanding my knowledge.

Thank you.

Information on Edible Plants?

Can anyone recommend a good resource (book, website, app, etc) on learning about the edible plants in our region? Specifically SW Washington and NW Oregon; but general PNW would be OK too.

Re: Public Lands Getting HAMMERED by Crowds

As a life long member of the Portland region, I can empathize with everyone who laments the increased crowds. It's hard, because you know and a love a reality, but that reality is changing quite drastically before your eyes, before you can come to terms with it. As a kid our parents would take us up...

Re: GoalTechHikes Eagle Creek 1/2/21 - Post Fire Opening

GoalTech, that's a name that I haven't heard since I read Wired's PCT blog from the PCT, in 2017 I think. She actually inspired me to get back out there after a 20 year hiatus. Anyway; awesome trip report, I really appreciate the detail and the photos! Alas, I have fond memories of Eagle Creek as a ...
