  1. We saw a ton of Alders blooming with Oysters while camping in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. I had to snag a few for a meal.

  2. Chances are slim but what if we planned a mt hood Reddit snow camp out?

  3. There aren't many better ways to get some solitude than heading off into the snow covered wilderness for a night of winter backpacking.

  4. I love this hike, and a ton of other hikes in Canyonlands. So far I have done Hikes on the Island in the Sky side, and in the The Needles. I'd like to go to The Maze but it's a pretty big drive to get there if you're near the other two park entrances.

  5. Same. I went to Island in the Sky and Needles. Hopefully I can get into the Maze on a future trip! 😊

  6. We went to Capitol Reef this spring and the kids want to go to more parks. Are there more easy hikes in Canyonlands for kids?

  7. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. As mentioned there are a bunch of great hikes. The NPS site mentions a few to get you started:

  8. The short 1.6-mile round trip hike to Aztec and Granaries Buttes seems like it could be lacking, but there is a lot to see. Several Ancestral Puebloan structures from granaries to eagle catching sites. Desert plants like Pricklypear Cactus, Winterfat, and Cushion Buckwheat. Expansive views from canyons to the La Sal Mountains. If your visit to Canyonlands National Park in Utah is short I would put this hike high on the list of to-dos.

  10. Isn't that bear country? If so in the future I'd be careful about cooking that close to where you sleep. It's best to go a little ways away

  11. There are black bears, but they are very skittish up in this area, nothing like the bears down in Yosemite. In all my time hiking and camping I've only ever seen one bear that was working the same Huckleberry patch as me. When he saw me he ran and was outta sight in a second or two.

  12. Nice, looks like you had great weather. Anything that you learned on the trip? I did my first snowshoe overnight earlier this year and had a blast!

  13. Weather was perfect after a week of snowfall. I learned I need more water proof boots, and more socks. The constant snow coverage and melting definitely got through to my feet. They were frozen solid when I woke up. They are great boots, but didn’t hold up in these conditions. Everything else held up pretty well.

  14. I actually used some way overkill mountaineering boots and they worked fine. The key is having a nice clean dry pair of socks to sleep in.

  15. Middle gets minimal traffic and is wonderful; Thielsen was my first climb with exposure and has a special place in my heart. Good choices.

  16. It's not about exact boundaries, it's about maintaining the spirit and tranquility of our Wilderness Areas.

  17. I like the charcoal gray ones up at the Hindu monastery

  18. @hikingindepth Mountain hemlock looks more like spruce in this video. Is that normal?

  19. I think they both have that blueish green look and needles on all sides (the sitka spruce does). However the needles on the mountain hemlock are a little short and also not as stiff. I also don't think the Sitka Spruce is in the Oregon Cascades. There is the Engelmann Spruce, but it's needles tend to radiate upwards. 😊

  20. Looks like it was worth it! I don’t have a lot of hiking opportunities where I’m at and have never seen a waterfall that wasn’t man made. I need to come visit you guys!

  21. There are tons of natural waterfalls and tools of great hikes, you'd love it!

  22. Your post has inspired me! It’s on my to die list! Thank you for sharing!

  23. Looks like a really fun trip. Are you going to portage around the dams, or can you use the locks?

  24. very nice videography! i must agree with you about the food and cold. I also think food tastes better when you're cold and it's home grown. if you'd like to learn more...

  25. Sent via chat! Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions. 😊

  26. It's the Durston X-Mid 2. I got it when it first came out and it seems to have grown in popularity. I think it's usually out of stock. It's been a great tent so far.

  27. True true. I guess I was wilderness hiking and national forest camping technically.

  28. Man, I wish you could get those at the 7-11 like you can in Japan.

  29. How do you like the xmid? Is it the 1 or 2?

  30. It's the 2. I have no complaints about it so far. Had it for a couple years and it's been cozy.

  31. There aren't many better ways to get some solitude than heading off into the snow covered wilderness for a night of winter backpacking.

  32. Wonderful, thank you! I was just downloading Timberline Trail videos to watch on a road trip we are leaving for in a few hours. I look forward to watching your video when we return home :)

  33. Here's the link to the video which will go live tonight at 7pm. Enjoy!

  34. With the recent weather it doesn't seem like winter is quite over...

  35. At first I thought they were holding phones in the picture which is lame, but I approve of 🍻

  36. 😁 and of course we packed out more than we packed in. Gotta keep it clean!

  37. Not to this specific spring, but I have to others in the area last fall and they were still in great shape! I might sneak over to some springs this May on my next trip to Boise.

  38. A clear mid-winter weather window inspired me to head out on my first snowshoe winter camping experience. The trip was filled with solitude, perfect weather, conifer forest and historic sites.
