My Locale East of Cascades
About Me Hiking for 32 years raised in a cabin north of Fairbanks AK. Married 20 years with 4 children. Dedicated ultralight hiker/backpacker. Also long distance canoeist. I like to spend time exploring an area in depth rather than go as far as possible. Moved to Yakima in 2006. Found White Pass to Chinook Pass on PCT and that will be my new playground for the next few years.

Where are you coming out?
Stehekin? If so there is a post office there that accepts general delivery all the time for PCT hikers. If you are going out at rainy pass and bypassing Stehekin, you are truly missing a great...

Hw to tell the difference between black and brown bears
When you see a bear and are unsure of which they are climb a tree. If the bear climbs after you and eats you, it is a black bear. If it pushes the tree down and eats you, it is a brown bear.
