Re: Hike conditioning: do lots of short hikes prepare you for long ones?

If you want to take this from an ultra training perspective, you need the weekday hikes to keep your body active and put stress on the muscles and joints.

Re: Coldwater Lake to Johnston Ridge Run/Hike October 11 2018

Sounds like a great adventure. How much water did you take with you on the bike to cover all that distance before you got to the waterfall?

Re: Classic late season Indian Heaven trip

I've noticed that Indian Heaven has the coolest mushroom population of anywhere close to Portland. The number of different species and the sizes are simply incredible.

https://www.rei.com/media/c03dfe26-d9ff-492c-a9c2-a83e062f2a66?size=784x588 This is an great tent that I've put only 14 nights into. It is in excellent condition, has been cleaned and stored properly between uses, and is very light-weight. The tent is four years old and I've detected no degradation...
