Those are some amazing photos and I almost forgot how much I miss hiking in Washington state :anicute: Here are some of my favorites from hikes and caching...

 

Made it up Mount Eklutna and taking a break before heading over to Bear in Chugiak, Alaska:

These small mountain lakes are all within a mile of each other.

It's about 6 and a half miles back to the farthest one (Grace Lake)

I took my fishing pole with me and was rewarded with cutthroat

trout galore in Grace Lake.They are located in the Big Belt Mountains,

about 25 miles east of Helena,Montana.

 

1st one you come to...couldn't find any name for this one.

Thanks for sharing all the beautiful places you all have been to. It is so amazing what this world has to offer. I can only imagine what it would be like to be in some of those places you all have been to.

Here is a few photos of My State In South Jersey Hiking and Kayaking Around The Batona Trail(NJ)Area.

Here's a few pics from our trip up Crosier Mountain in Colorado.

 

12.1 miles going up Crosier Mountain. Not sure of total elevation gain, but I think it's around 3,000 ft.

 

We made it to the top of Crosier:

Sure is pretty up there:

This past weekend I redeemed myself on this hike with a great group of cachers:

 

Glad to see you had company. Sorry I couldn't make it.

Sorry I didn't see you, LandRover, or Hydnsek there. I do understand you guys had a big hike the day before so it all ends well. ;) If you get a chance to make it that way great. If you want to wait when SquareBear is back in town, I'll go again. Might even go for an overnight there's a sweet campsite there.

The wife wanted to got to Cache-cadia this last week-end so I figured while in Cache-cadia, do as the Cache-Cadians.

If you make this a overnighter let me know and I will do everythig I can to make it, I'll even bring the ear-plugs for everyone. ;)

My last attempt at an overnighter ended up with a broken out window and a drive back home before I even got to the trail head.

Did my first 'major hike' up Grouse Mountain in Vancouver B.C. Known as The Grouse Grind, It's been called nature's stairmaster and they ain't kidding... I had a blast and surprisingly, no ill effects to speak of afterwards!

 

 

Of course, my pixs aren't as exciting as most of yours.

 

 

The Mountain from a distance. Doesn't look too bad from here.

Very cool. That was a steep looking mountain even from the distance. The trail pics confirm it. Congrats on the effort as that looks better than 45% grade on the "stairmaster" even when considering the trail cut!

 

 

Thanks! Yeah, it was damned steep 45% grade although it seemed steeper than that at one point. It ascends about 2800 feet in 1.8 miles. It sure was something completely different from the flat terrain of Wisconsin!
