I can't seem to get enough outdoor adventure. My wife and I have been camping up a storm since we moved to Oregon in 2007. I am a liver transplant survivor, and I thrive in nature.
Thanks for the article, Jared. These people have me constantly shaking my head. It's bad enough that when I go out on trails now, I tend to find more garbage and dog poop bags lying on the side of the trails than I see on sidewalks in the city. Sadly, I don't think it has quite reached critical mass. We need more focus on ethics, than gear and experiences.
Kind of bummer that weekends require a two night stay.
Hiked on 1/31, great conditions, trail system was pretty well marked, with blue diamonds. There was only one small bridgeless stream crossing (currently on snow bridge), the rest were on wooden bridges.

I'm not 100%, but those might be avalanche lilly seed pods or pre-bloom flowers.
Great trip! Went up E. Line Butte from the South and explored the entire summit and the mining villages. Thanks for the info!
