    Pat, interested?
    Just a heads up, I don't know when it really 'opens'. There's no vehicle access to the beginning of the trail, you have to park at the very base. It's some pretty serious inclines up to the trail (comparable to some downtown Seattle hills), and probably over a mile or so (I wasn't paying much attention, was BSing the whole way).

    Do you guys know of any other good trails or sites to research different hikes? My wife and I are making this a regular thing, just looking for people that have experience in this kind of thing.

    I did Mt. Ellinor two summers ago. Really want to do it again this summer. Great hike, and a good way to put yourself on the couch for 3-4 days if you're out of shape.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'm definitely interested in the hike now.

    I used to have WA state park brochures. I've hiked the Paradise area or Mt. Rainier, and along the coast of the Olympic Pennisula.
    A good friend highly recommended hiking Mt. Baker.

    Wallace Falls is a good hike, and a beautiful one.

    Mt Si is always a pretty good hike too..

    Went to some yoga/pilates thing with Jen this morning. Wasn't expecting much out of a mostly body-weight workout, but damn, it worked

    Got to run in the Hood-to-Coast again this year. Same legs as last year, but I did *not* train enough/much leading up to it. Quite the epic weekend again, and the incredible storm made it all-the-more interesting.

    My family and I went down to the Ape Caves at Mt. St. Helens over the weekend. They're fun to explore. We made the mistake of bringing craptastic flashlights with us. With the kiddos it was a 2 hour round trip to do the lower cave. Up top it was cool to see where the lava had cooled around tree trunks, which burned and then rotted, leaving trunk sized holes in the lava flow.

    Hiked all around the Rock Candy area of Capital Forest yesterday while out archery hunting for deer. Going out again today. I forgot how much I missed tracking and sneaking up on deer. Hopefully I can stock the freezer early season versus late season.

    Nice, thanks man.

    We just bought flooring for our basement 'gym' and cleaned/set out the weights. Now I just need to setup the Bowflex and actually start working out again

    Sweet. Hoping to have that kind of room in the next house, or a big enough shop. I had a YMCA membership all summer, and went less than 10 times. It just wasn't convenient enough in my busy schedule. There's an Anytime Fitness across the street from my new field office, so I may be able to make that work.

    Rode 66 miles of rocky, rooty, wet, whooped out, log hopping singletrack up at Taenum on Saturday on the dirt bike. Hiked up about 1.5 miles on the Wallace Falls trail with the kiddos on Sunday. Can barely go up and down stairs today.
