    I made the mistake of coming down the Skook, you are wise to climb it. That trail is a muddy mess and very slippery.

    I agree, Percival first if you're going to do a loop. The Mount Morgan trail avoids the ladder section if you don't want to descend that way. The parking lot should be open but if it's not, there's...

    I've done this hike and can say it is a fantastic day-hike. Ypsilon is spectacular, there are marmots on Chiquita and there are elk everwhere. A good warm-up hike that isn't mentioned is a hike up...

    I disagree. I spoke to my dr on the phone yesterday. He says if you can get the dose within 24 hrs you won't get Lyme. Not guaranteed but the percentage is very high. Seems kind of strange to...

    I think Zealand as a dayhike in winter is one of the toughest mentally. Doing that road-walk on the way in and out is so boring. Good job and good luck finishing the winter 48.
