Yeah, Don is pretty impressive.
Imagine what he could accomplish if he got out of bed before noon. ;)

I love these threads!

Total mileage: Just over 1200
Elevation gain: No idea
Days hiking: 87
Longest day: 35 miles (in the Wallowas), though the Loowit felt longer
Longest hike: 100+ miles in the Wallowas (over 5 nights)

It was a rough year, I guess for everyone. Nice that the mountains were still there.

Longest day 33 miles Old Cascadia loop.

Finally got into the Mount Margaret Backcountry for the first time, amazing place.

Spent a lot of time on Mt Adams, so much less crowded then the normal spots.

Overall it was a great year in the woods.

2020_summary.png

My goal for the year was 100,000 feet of elevation gain, which I hit on Christmas Eve somewhere on Table Mountain.

I only went on one backpacking trip, a single night in Jefferson Park in July. A buddy and I were planning to do the Timberline Trail in September until the Labor Day windstorm and wildfires forced us to cancel.

Earliest start was 3:30am for the Mt. Adams climb, which I did as a day hike.
Latest start was 6pm for a hike up Cooper Spur, timed to get a good view of Comet NEOWISE on the way down.

There's no need to be afraid.
Keep walking.
