ScapeGoat Mountain Loop 2010 : 14 day loop around Scapegoat Mountain, this was a very agressive 110 mile trip from the Smith Creek Trail Head.  We hiked around Scapegoat Mountain, through the Danaher Valley, and back out.  52 of these miles were climbing miles, that is 26,893 feet of elevation gain over the course of this trip!  Deffinitly the most agressive backpacking trip we have taken yet.Our packs weigh right at 100 pounds each when we start off.

Still working on all the captions ...!

Chinese Wall 2009 : 14 day loop around the Chinese Wall from the Silvertip Trailhead.  This trailhead is located at the far eastern edge of Hungry Horse Dam.  What a spectacular trip!  We traveled over 100 miles of beautiful wild country on this trip.  Our packs going in were 90 pounds and when we came out they were 60...crazy aren't we!!  But we love our comfort and good food when we are out.
