The Blues Beckon

The first written press about the Blue Mountains Trail came out! Check out this great article in the Baker City Herald:

Four Hikers Complete The New, 566-Mile Blue Mountains Trail

The Blues Beckon

By JAYSON JACOBY Baker City Herald

Renee Patrick started her epic walk through the Blue Mountains in the sweaty heat of July, and she finished it amid the nostril-freezing chill of an alpine autumn.
Along the 566 miles of hiking in between, Patrick was at turns challenged, enlightened and even awed by the eclectic landscapes of Northeast Oregon.

She also made history.

And now, a few months after she finished her trek, Patrick is helping to promote the Blue Mountains Trail, a route she and other proponents hope will join the ranks of America’s other long-distance wilderness paths.

“It’s fun to be at the beginning of an effort like this that people are excited about,” Patrick said in a Jan. 14 phone interview. “It’s exciting for the eastern half of the state to have more recreational opp..

NH 4K: North and South Kinsman via Mount Kinsman Trail (Winter)

Buy my new novel Take to the Unscathed Road now! Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Liam and I wanted to get some more gridding in, and as of late night hikes have been our go to. We commenced our journey from the Mount Kinsman trailhead a little after 3 pm.

It appeared as if there were other people hiking the Kinsmans today. The snow was about an inch deep but packed down. As we climbed higher, we noticed a large family with no traction coming down the trail. We questioned whether they had made it to the top based on their inadequate footwear.

It turns out that they had just gone up to Bald Peak, which was in the clouds anyway. There was a fresh coating of 2 or so inches of trail heading up to the Kinsmans. Shortly after this, Liam switched over to snowshoes but I kept my microspikes on. It wasn't deep enough for me to justify switching at the time.

The snow got a little deeper as we climbed up to the junction with the Kinsman Ridge, but Liam was able to pack nearly all of it down for the next people. It's still a little loose but microspikes should suffice for most of the hike.


However, the trail became deeper and deeper with deep snowdrifts just before the summit of South Kinsman. You probably should have snowshoes for this section, but Liam was able to pack down some of it.

It was likely in the low teens, but I never felt too cold. It made for a perfect night adventure!

Total Time: 4 hrs 54 Total Distance: ~9.6 miles (Garmin Fenix 5x Plus)Total Elevation Gain: ~4080 vertical gain

How to Make Backpacking Dinners in Batches – Gluten and Dairy Free

Because ya can’t go walking around hungry. ~Asher, my grandson

Food preparation for backpacking trips can be daunting. I have found that making all my dinners at one time at the beginning of the hiking season or for a long distance trail takes away some of the stress and is actually fun. The requirements for this system:

-nutritious
-delicious
-filling
-wide variety of flavors
-no cooking, just boiled water
gluten and dairy free
-compact and easy to carry
-lightweight

Here is what I do before I hit the trail.

Low Aziscohos Mountain via Aziscohos North Trail (Maine)

Buy my new novel Take to the Unscathed Road now! Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
On an arctic day with wind chills in the negatives, Lauren and I decided to do a short hike in the Rangeley area. It took quite a while to find one because they are few and far between. Or at least, they're hard to locate online. But we really hit a homerun on Aziscohos.

The trailhead can be found on Route 16 and there is ample room for roadside parking. There is no sign, however, but the trail is easy enough to locate if you have a map of the Rangeley Area or plug in the trailhead into Google Maps.

The trail is steep from the get-go, but at only 3.4 miles round trip, you need to get some elevation in before you're rewarded.

The trail conditions were better than those we had the day before, with packed snow (and a little bit of ice underneath, but nothing crazy).

The trail conditions were better than those we had the day before, with packed snow (and a little bit of ice underneath, but nothing crazy).


Eventually the trail becomes a little messier and icier as it climbed up higher.

But after the steepest sections the snow started to fill in a bit.


The summit views were outstanding. 360 degree views on a mostly cloudless day. The only negative is we didn't get to see the White Mountains because they were shrouded in some clouds.



Aside from the somewhat uneventful trail to get there, Low Aziscohos is an excellent short peak with stunning views that I hope to come back to some day.
