Packwood Lake is a great early season backpacking option if you can find a good weather window. Even though the forecast called for rain every day, we lucked out and only had a brief period of bad weather.
Indian Heaven Wilderness is my favorite place to backpack in the fall due to the brilliant display of color. On this four day backpacking trip, we hiked the Lakes Basin loop and explored around Lemei Rock.
