I took a hike back into Topinka Falls and it reminded me why it’s such a great place.
I hit a couple small waterfalls on Emile Creek and I ran down a tall one elsewhere that could open up another adventure later on.
It had been many years since I had been up Canton Creek so on a whim, I took a left and headed up, looking for find something interesting.
I took an ill-fated trip into the Devil’s Staircase. Well…at least halfway there…
I went back to a pond I visited previously to attempt some good newt pics. Here’s what I found…
I took a solo backpacking trip to Eileen Lake via the Pacific Crest Trail instead of coming in from Linton Lake and saw some amazing views.
The premise: camp in a place I had never been to with people I had never met and hike to a waterfall few had ever been to before. What could go wrong?
My wife and I took a hiking vacation up the McKenzie River and we found some good stuff.
