With welcoming a new dog into my active life, I knew I’d be taking him along my backpacking adventures! I’ve learned a few lessons so far, and know I’ll learn more on each trip. Here’s a few tips for getting started backpacking with your dog.
The PNW has a tiny window–sometimes a non-existent one–between when fall color is out and when they either fade or get covered by snow. Mama Boots and I decided to squeeze one last colorful hike in and we still had some snow!
A Schrodinger’s hike exists–one both so crowded that parking is a feat, but so uncrowded you might not see a soul till the end. This hike is also nice and close, in the town of Gold Bar. I’m talking about not Wallace Falls, but Wallace Lake.
