All-Season outdoor enthusiast : ), water/kayak, mountain tops, hikes, snow, cycling, camping :0)
Rucker Ridge ~ Columbia Gorge...although at least a dozen others come in a close 2nd! Different times of year produce incredible places to hike here in the northwest, not just in our corner of Oregon : )
Oh boy, dozens of trips over the years, love being on Metolius, enjoy around cascade peak areas, coast, southern Oregon, near lakes, how can we pick one? !
Depends on the activity, some great for hikes, others wonderful for backpacking, snow includes few other pieces I use and rate high on my list. Sorry, not just one thing! : )
Out of the way wilderness, overnight in Jeff park with day hikes, is close enough, yet a day-hike loop at Kentucky Falls would be nice.(I led a two-car hike, no loop, in this area when the trail was not yet defined, pretty area.)
