Siouxon Creek backpack

My first backpack of the year at Siouxon Creek… if you follow my posts every year, you’ll notice that this is one of my favorite places to go in the spring. It’s an easy trip that’s great for beginners or those getting back into the swing of backpacking, and for testing out new gear. It’s also great for easy hiking and relaxing next to waterfalls.

If you camp here, there are lots of mice running around at night looking for food or for gear to chew up, so do yourself a favor (and every one who goes there after you) and keep a clean camp. We always bring a trash bag to carry out what others leave behind, and happily there was much less trash this time. I love this place SO MUCH and want it to remain wild and trash-free.
