My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), maybe better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: 6 days backpacking in Glacier NP
Great pics and info. Anytime someone can take some photos is great to give a visual sense of that place and conditions.

Re: Dyatlov Pass incident

Re: how did this happen?
I thought the forest service encouraged fires to burn often to prevent these mega fires from happening. After out by the next 10 AM, for awhile they were generally letting them burn but pressure...

Re: Day hikes around Santa Fe

Re: 65 Mile Loop - Flat Tops Wilderness, CO
Great report. Wonder if the increase in cattle you saw were those coming from the burnt wilderness areas down here (i.e. no grass left to graze)?
