Day 153 – 159 Goat Rocks Wilderness to Snoqualmie Pass

We hike through the gorgeous Goat Rocks Wilderness with amazing mountain views, and then, I break away from the group and hike solo to smash out a huge 160km (100miles) in 3.5days to catch a hitch from Snoqualamie Pass to PCT Days. This still remains my favourite section of the whole hike.

Days 99 – 109 South Lake Tahoe to Mammoth (SOBO)

48hrs in Tasmania

I’m lucky enough to have a job that requires travel, so when I saw I had to be in Hobart on a Monday, I immediately committed to a weekend exploring Tasmania. I chose a few places I wanted to visit along the western side and then made an effort to leave the rest of the weekend completely […]

Snow Shoeing, Perisher to Charlotte Pass, NSW

Would you believe me if I said a weekend at the snow cost me just $160?  Way back in April I asked a friend if they could take me back country snow shoeing this winter, and last weekend it finally happened. The Plan: A two day, 20km Snowshoe hike from Perisher Valley to Thredbo via […]
