Pacific Northwest Trail reports

A week after returning home from the Pacific Northwest Trail my summer adventure is already fading into the past. Dealing with a failed hard drive (the one with the operating system of course) and the aftermath of restoring files and software has proved an unwelcome distraction. Downloading my images has been welcome, though seeing the images on screen further confirms that it really is over.

Reports on the trail will continue though. Long reports are being published each month in TGO, the first ones in the October and November issues. I’ll be describing how my gear performed in a feature in the January issue too. Short versions of these articles plus the videos I made before the walk can be seen on the TGO website.

There’s also a gallery of images, all taken with my phone camera, on my Facebook page.

Photo Info: Photo info: Clouds & Sun in the Five Lakes Basin, Olympic National Park. Canon EOS 450D, Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS@18mm, 1/250@F8, ISO 200, raw file converted to JPEG in Lightroom 3.2.


  1. Chris, I will look forward to reading all about your trip and your gear thoughts and experiences

  2. What a contrast between the colours in this photograph versus the previous one!

  3. I thought I'd better drop by and find out more about my namesake, seeing as I'm starting to get people hitting my website when they want yours!

    That is a fantastic picture by the way. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Congratulations, Chris. I will have to try and procure issues of TGO to read the longer versions of your TRs.
