Yes. Up has the right of way. Limit 12 to a group. Stay on the trail. Smile, say "hello" to passerbys. Leave no trace (pack it in; pack it out). Don't poke the bear. (etc)
8-After a summer of conditioning I could say I am a pretty avid hiker. If you are looking to get into shape (or stay in shape) join me on my bi-weekly conditioners.
I have four: 1. Hoh River; I know its not that difficult, but it a beautiful area I have hiked in the Olympics. 2. Berkley/Grand Parks; Mount Rainier. Did a backpacking trip and saw my first bear in the wild! Baby marmmots, large elk, hundreds of butterflies and slept under the stars...amazing! 3. Sol Duc, again I know it is not that difficult, but the Olympics are one of my favorite places to adventure. 4. Sahale Arm-I hiked this with another host this summer and had an amazing experience. The hike was so breathtakingly beautiful...every time I turned there was a new vista to take in. *Most of my current friends are not in the best hiking shape and therefore I often settle on short or easy hikes. To start this summer I will probably do the same and look to progressively go on longer trips.
Alpine Lakes. More of the Olympics. Some day I would really like to hike the entire Wonderland Trail. Really want to climb Mount Rainier, Adams, Helens and Baker...any others could be considered. I might be willing to travel out of state for adventures with people I become familiar with. I have been to Glacier National Park, would very much like to go back. I really want to hike the majority of the Oregon and California coast line and mountains. Give me the comfort of the woods and I'm a happy gal.
Hi, my name is Leah. This last year has been one of the best, thanks! I enjoy hiking, kayaking, biking, backpacking, gardening, reading, frisbee, if its outside and I'm likely to get dirty I know I will enjoy it. I am always eager to hit the trails!
