Enjoying the views.

A nice hike in the high and dry Eagle Cap Wilderness in north east Oregon. Featuring plenty of wildflowers and the very nice Aneroid Lake with its interesting history and rustic cabins.

A journey into Enchanted Valley where time stands still for a rustic chalet built in 1931 and the bears frolic in the warming rays of the spring sun. A wilder romp like none other in the Olympics!

Can you really enjoy a fine charcuterie board in the backcountry? Absolutely! Shoulder season is a great opportunity to pack items that you might avoid during the hotter months so why not take some nice cheeses and maybe even a nip of wine? Charcuterie with a view, what’s not to love?

An early season hike through coastal forest and along the coast. This hike is spectacular, featuring petroglyphs and endless tide pools. Nature abounds as you romp along the coast.

Escaping the long, wet, dark, PNW winter for some desert warmth, this romp takes us to the Superstition Wilderness and features Weaver’s Needle.

Morning Lake Reflections

Lake side camping, high mountain passes, lower river forests. This romp has it all. At 45 miles and nearly 15,000′ of elevation gain, it’s not easy, even spread over 4 days. But if you are looking to put down some miles, taking you through several distinct ecosystems, with incredible vistas, you’ll be hard pressed to do better.

This hike begins at the Phelps Creek Trailhead and continues along Phelps Creek for about 6 miles before reaching the stunning Spider Meadow. Nestled within the basin, you’ll enjoy the sounds of the creek waters, the playful antics of the local marmots, and an abundance of wildflowers. Take a side trek up to Spider Glacier, soaking in breathtaking vistas along the way. These are perfect environs for a Wilder Romp!

Horseshoe Basin Romp

There is no place quite like the Pasayten Wilderness and this Horseshoe Basin romp will give would a great taste of an amazing arctic tundra. Throw in a side trek up Armstrong Mountain to visit the Canada-US border and you have yourself a proper Wilder Romp!
