Magnet Creek Outings

Although ‘Magnet’ might imply this area attracts lots of people, it’s quite the opposite. Even on a huge weekend (e.g., Memorial Day or Labor Day) you’re likely to be alone on this airy but scenic hike near Blewett Pass.

Twin Lakes

My companions were shocked, “What? Mr. Outdoors hasn’t hiked to Twin Lakes? Every outdoorsman who’s any outdoorsman has hiked this one!” Doing this hike was long overdue for me but I can attest that I should have done this one long ago. It's not really the lakes that make this such a good hike, but the walk to get there.

Dreamchasing on Twin Peaks

It's not as dimwitted as the desire to wrestle crocodiles. Nor as bizarre as dreams of swimming with marine iguanas, but a compulsion to hike the inaccessible East Ridge of Twin Peaks needled me. This weekend the time seemed ripe as we struck off after dark with snow spilling from the sky.
