I actually live in OR now but kept my NHM membership to live vicariously through some of my old hiking buds.
The leprechauns told me...
"No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible."
It is wonderful to see the differences in the landscape out here versus appalachia. wow! I can't wait to explore (with people mwho know the area better than I).
Good to know! I've also been told there are no poisonous snakes around here. I still don't know what the mosquito situation is, though.
Great hike and you are a great host. I'm just teasing about the control stuff. Thank-you for being so conscientious of the group as a whole. I might have found an interesting hike on the Washington side. I have to talk to a ranger before I check it out. I'll let you know if it pans out. Aloha, Michele
Happy New Year!!! When's the next hike?
