My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

Wow, Malto, much more snow on the peak, too, as well as more water over the falls. I'm glad I did it this year, I think the crossings would have been much more hairy. Would have been more plac...

I am doing very basic photography with a Canon point-and-shoot, then uploading to the web to share with family and friends. Once in a while, I'd like to draw on a photo, place an arrow, circle...

Both the Photon and the Cyclops Micro light use the 2016 button batteries. Much more convenient than carrying separate spares.

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
