Hi all,

I just joined the forums and wanted to introduce myself.  I'm a former Washingtonian who moved to central Oregon a little over 10 years ago.  I've been in a job for the past 6 years that has limited my ability to enjoy extended (3 nights or longer) hiking trips during the summer months (June-September).  But I'm happy to say that, due to an upcoming career change, I will be in a position to take time off ANYTIME during the year!

So next summer I'm going to take a week off in July or August so I can do some hiking in the North Cascades region.  I've done one hike in the Glacier Peak region, the Spider Meadow-Lyman Lakes loop, which was a wonderful trip.

There are other places on my life list of hikes, but I'll start with Washington, my old stomping grounds.

See ya out there...

Good to have you here Captain Wanderlust! (great name!) I love the North-cascades! I've done four different overnight hikes in that area, and I think my favorite one would have to be Copper Ridge. (all my trip reports are on my blog http://kellbell-whywouldanyonereadthis.blogspot.com/ )

If you have a TR on your Spider Meadow trip, I'd love to read it. That is next on my overnight list.

Ive been out of major out door hiking and camping for the last 20-23 years  frown.gif No bueno for sure.

I was a big desert hiker and MtBike runner when I was younger. Now at 41 I want to get out and do it again and replenish my soul in the Cathedral of the out doors. I hope to ease back into it all through this winter on easy trail stuff. Im fat, broken and need the work out. Wish me luck all!

The intro thread I started.

Long time lurker but since I finally moved out to WA state from Florida, I decided I should join.  Looking forward to posting trip reports and continuing to reading them!  I'm also looking for someone to hike with since my partner got stuck with a weekend job.

I ended up in Kent so it looks like I have tons of trails to explore in a 2 hour or less radius so pretty excited.  Ventured out to Wallace Falls and Mt. Walker already  and can't wait to do my first overnight trip sometime this summer!

I'm Hannah, I hike with my dog Beau, she's a blue heeler/catahoula mix. I moved to Washington from the mountains in North Carolina and I've lived in Ellensburg for just under a year. I explore all the time and hope to learn about different hikes and places to go with my pup. Besides the outdoors I enjoy live music, cooking, good beer, and most importantly, the Green Bay Packers.

Long time lurker, recently began posting.

Grew up in the Utah/Idaho/Wyoming/Colorado area, so a lot of Rockies hiking in my distant past.  Then I lived in Maryland for about 25 years, hiked some central Appalachian stuff, but got more into whitewater kayaking/canoeing than hiking....   Then I moved to Utlanna Joja about 4 years ago, been backpacking the hell outta the southern appalachians. (And loving the trees/forests, vegetation, and "green-tunnels" thankyouverymuch.)

Hi all,

My name is Heather, and I just joined. I am 29, and have been living in Portland, Oregon for about 8 years now, backpacking for 6. Up until recently my wife and I spent all our good-weather free-time backpacking, but the last 2 years she has become more and more entrenched in the motorcycle community. I am frankly completely uninterested, which means I now have the occasional nice weekend alone, and I have realized that I am sort of a social hermit without her. I am hoping to maybe make some friends on here that I can hike or backpack with when she is away. smile.gif

My favorite day hike is the Mt Hood Meadows Loop in late summer, and my favorite backpacking trail is Jefferson Lake -> Sugar Pine Ridge. I also snowboard. I love reading, especially sci-fi. I have too many cats. I just bought a house. I have ambitions of world travel.

Hello, and nice to be here.

Hi Heather! Wish you lived closer to me, I'd love to hike with you! How long have you been married? My daughter is a lesbian, so I can't help always being excited to see someone who is not afraid to be out and proud. (unfortunate religious issues...makes me so sad and angry) It was a really difficult journey for her and our family, and so when I see other gay people who look as happy as you do, it gives me hope that my daughter will find someone and just have a fulfilling, normal life. Thanks for posting!

smile.gif My wife and I have been together for 6 years, and married for a year and 9 months. We are incredibly happy, so much so that I sometimes feel guilty for how happy we are! I wish everyone was as happy as we are. Here's a pic of us from our wedding, just 'cause I love sharing!

Being out has been pretty easy for me, and I am thankful that both our families were pretty religion-free, so there were never any issues of that kind for us. It also helps to be in the wonderful Pacific Northwest, which is chock-full of open-minded folks!

I am sure your daughter will find someone! Finding that perfect someone can sometimes be more difficult for gay people, but that just makes it all that much sweeter when it does happen.

I am sorry we are not close, but thanks for your note! If you are ever in the Oregon/SW Washington area, I would love to hike with you and/or your daughter. smile.gif

Hi!  I'm Brooke.  Been lurking for a few months and discovered that this is a very open, informative and diverse site for the local hiking community.  Glad to be a part of it!  I've lived in western Washington my entire 47 years, and was introduced to the wilderness as a kid by my dad, an old mountaineer, who showed me the natural wonders of this state and instilled in me an undying love for them.
I've been a hiker and skier for almost 40 years, been a backpacker since my time in the Scouts and primarily a soloist for the past 25 years or so.  I'm sure I've probably bumped into more than a few of you over the years, and hope to meet more of you in the years to come!  See ya on the high-side!   smile.gif

Hola Hikerinos!

My name is Chris. I just joined this morning. I live on the Eastside (Bellevue) of the Seattle area, but originally from Florida (moved here in 2007). To call me a newbie or rookie would probably be an understatement.

I've only done a few very small hikes, but have enjoyed them thoroughly enough that I'm interested in doing more. I don't know much about hiking, so I'm just in the process of trying to learn more so that I'm safe and hopefully find a group I can get with to learn the ins and outs better.

I've joined a Seattle Hikers meetup group, but I have not gone on a hike with them yet. I've also heard about a local group called "The Mountaineers", but know little if nothing about them. Recommendations  for getting started would be appreciated.

Howdy all!

Just found this place last week. I also just recently moved up here (DuPont area) from Texas. I've missed greenery, mountains, rain and snow. I've always liked hiking but haven't done much in the past 15 yrs. So i am getting back into it now that i am in such a great hiking area.  I like day hikes but I like them on the longer side. I like to camp as well but I am limited as to the amount of time I can go due to work and family.  frown.gif  I have a feeling I will be doing many hikes alone as my family doesn't like doing the longer hikes (anything over 5 miles). And since winter is approaching, I will be looking for ideas on winter hikes (not snowshoeing).

Cheers!

Hi all,
I'm Travis, originally from Reno, Nevada.  I'm 31, and have been hiking for most of my life, and climbing for over a decade.  I recently relocated to Seattle because my S/O is going to the UW.  Right now, I'm unemployed and using the time off to get in as many PNW hikes as possible.
I'm always up for getting into the mountains, and I'm relatively new to Seattle, so if you're interested in some weekday hiking/climbing, let me know.
I hike pretty quickly, but half the time I'm just staggered by the beauty of the Cascades.
