Yes. I think there's always more to learn, though. I don't think it's a bad idea for organizers to briefly discuss the etiquette pre-hike.
7? 8? Haven't met a hike I couldn't finish yet. I think I have become more used to elevations, as I'm a flat lander. I have to learn about more technical hikes. I feel fairly comfortable on snow with my equipment. I don't have navigation skills, though.
The Wentachee/Cady Ridge Loop almost killed my tailbone. It was pretty, despite snowy inclines from hell. Lake Serene is pretty rough as far as the incline/rapid elevation gain, but I would do it again due to great views.
Hi, I have been living in Seattle since 2010. I'm from Baton Rouge (no mountains, but the weather is a lot sunnier!). I've been hiking like mad since I moved here.
Fun people. Really chill.
