Pacific Northwest


My annual fall colors trip, this time to Washington and Oregon.  Inclement weather thwarted my attempt to enter The Enchantments in 2009, but this year was a success.  Unfortunately, the larches had already peaked and most had either lost their needles, or were turning brown.  Still, it was beautiful up there.  I spent a couple of nights and then high tailed it back to Leavenworth, and drove south to Oregon, hoping the colors wouldn’t be as far along.  I backpacked though the Jefferson Wilderness and had the whole park to myself, it seemed.  On the way back to Seattle, I stopped by Oregon’s Painted Hills and then Proxy Falls.  A wonderful week-long adventure!
