This was definitely my hardest trip of the year. I knew what I'm getting into, but also realized that this team never fails, so for me this was "now or never". During an attempt about 10 years ago I...

Scary. Glad your son is OK.
But Mt. Weart lives to its reputation. About 10 years ago I was part of the group that scrambled it. While gaining the ridge, I was about to hold on some rocks in a...

My wife and I did this trail in April, after probably the last dusting of fresh snow in the season. Beautiful area indeed. The only sad part was stumbling upon a freshly-dead large cougar lying right...

We took the shortcut both ways. In the morning - because it was suggested by the signs, on the way back - due to tiredness and dehydration.

A friend and I did this hike quite a while ago, perhaps 12 years or so, definitely in pre-Clubtread era. We liked it.

As part of our trip to Glacier National Park, my wife and I hiked the Abbott Ridge trail and scrambled to its culmination point - Mount Abbott.
Our day started out cloudy and warm. Two days prior we...

Thanks for the lead!
In addition to those jackets, Burnaby (Still Creek) Costco had a bunch of Cloudveil clothing today, also attractively priced.

It was an excellent trip to a very pretty area. We had good luck with weather - not too hot, and somewhat cloudy skies provided for nice photo ops. Here are some of my shots....

Sadly, I doubt any form of hiker's 'protest' (e-mails, boycotting the business, appealing to history) will work. Grouse Mountain Resort makes money not on hikers or GG regulars, but on visitors who...

I have been to Kalalau Beach twice, in 2002 and 2012, and haven't seen anyone checking the permits. BUT, doing that trail in one day is rather pointless; it is not a training run, one should enjoy...

We happened to see and talk to that couple waiting to be rescued by the helicopter.
They sounded quite cheerful, so the injury must have been minor indeed.

The initial ascent to the ridge was one of the steepest in my memory. Despite a maze of logging roads on the slopes across the valley, the area has a genuine wilderness feel. Only once did we see a...

This area brings up memories from my pre-Clubtread hiking past (2002-03). It is nice to know that the shelter is still standing. I'm contemplating a trip there this summer.

I would like to join this trip, possibly with my wife. We'd need a ride up the logging roads.

So up to 50 cyclists may be inconvenienced during their precious timed runs. How terrible, one must complain immediately to all levels of power and government!
But how about the 'critical mass',...
