Is this really a good life decision for me to be out here?~from the documentary “A Sense of Direction – A 1200 mile walk on the Pacific Northwest Trail”
Saddle below Wind River Peak to Big Sandy Lake – 8.2 miles
Route: Saddle below Wind River Peak * top of Wind River Peak * down the west gully * Black Joe Lake * Big Sandy Lake
GEAR OF THE DAY
Outdoor Research Chroma Full Sun Gloves
I usually wear fingerless sun gloves, but for our trips this summer I needed more protection on my fingertips when hiking through granite boulders. Just touching the rough granite a few times will rub the skin right off the tips of the fingers, cause cracks, and just plain old pain. The OR gloves have protected my hands from the sun and rough rocks and they have lasted without getting holes in the fingertips thanks to the leather palms.
