Timberline Lodge Buffet: Simply the best AYCE buffet on the PCT! A big thanks to Dennis and his staff for allowing me to keep eating for a couple of hours after closing time. I can’t remember when I’ve been so full………..probably the last time I was here back in 2007!
Waterfalls: How can you not help but love waterfalls? Seriously, some people don’t like the desert. Others don’t care for mountains, rivers or oceans. But who ever heard of anyone who had something against waterfalls? On July 12, I was fortunate to visit my two favourite cascades of the PCT; namely Ramona and Tunnel Falls. Both of these stunning natural wonders are not actually on the “official” PCT, but you would have to be the most anal of trail purists to bypass either one. Not to be missed!
