ALONG THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL -- September Section Hikes in Oregon and Washington --

Pacific Crest Trail Washington Mt Adams thru hiker
We had a genuine Northwest September this year.  The first fall rains came the first week, bringing out mushrooms like we haven't seen in years.  Then a return to warm and summery weather to remind us how friendly our climate can be.  There were some showery days with sun-breaks mixed in there, and now the snow has returned to the mountains, blanketing them white.  

TRIP REPORT: Backpacking Mt. Hood National Forest

Camping on the summit of a mountain is a great way to cap off a day of backpacking, but getting there can be a bit tricky, and you may have to time it just right.
