Whitney "Allgood" La Ruffa, and firiends hiked the Sierra High Route this summer.
Since Winter has finally returned to the PNW this year, Karluk and I have been taking this time to enjoy the snow in the Cascades.
Recently we have gone backcountry skiing and snowshoeing on Mt Hood and Indian Heaven Wilderness.
We hope that this el Nino storm system keeps bringing us more of the fluffy white stuff sowe we will have plenty of water to drink while hiking this spring and summer
