Hiking/ car camping/ backpacking/ snowshoeing/ bike riding.
My favorite day hike has been Opal Creek, although many others come in a close second- Cape Mountain, Canyon Creek, Little North Santiam and Indigo Lake. Favorite backpacking trip so far has been Sparks Lake, then Tahkenitch Dunes and Rosary Lakes not far behind.
Really loved camping out on Sparks Lake in the snow under the shadow of South Sister and Broken Top during the Supermoon.
My pack! It's an Osprey Aura pack. Love it. But my Jetboil and my Big Agnes Copper Spur UL2 tent aren't far behind. Come to think of it... I also love my Katadyn water filter and my REI sleeping bag and my Thermarest NeoAir All season mattress. And my snowshoes. Actually its too hard to choose. I love it all!
Pretty much any day hikes and backpacking trips. Snowshoe and snow camping trips would be great. More bike rides would be great too as soon as I get a bike.
Looking forward to some great hikes and meeting new people who like the same.
