I typically hike in wilderness areas - season, weather and snow permitting. The hikes get longer - and more challenging - as the days get warmer. My very favorite hikes climb through multiple ecozones to alpine flowers, like Elk Meadows on Mt. Hood or Horseshoe Meadows on Mt. Adams.
Lifetime Sierra Club Member, Hillsboro High & MIT grad, I lead day hikes and talk about the ecology and geology of the area we hike in. The journey is the destination.
