Hi, I’m Lisa “Deepdive” Holmes, a guidebook author & graphic designer.
I post trip reports and info about gear, skills, and backpacking food.
On this challenging three night backpacking trip, we stayed at Rachel Lake the first night, then continued up to Rampart Lakes for two more nights.
It’s impossible to imagine limiting Oregon’s natural wonders to only seven spots, but these seven serve as a great starting point. And each one of them offers outstanding hiking, camping, and backpacking opportunities! Discover hikes at the Oregon Coast, Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood, Smith Rock, Crater Lake, and the Wallowas.
Whether you consider yourself a beginning backpacker, or it’s been awhile since your last trip and you want to brush up on your skills, this book will help you plan a trip, learn about gear options, and provide tips for your time on the trail and at camp.
