Weather forecast

Which websites do you guys use for your weather forecasts pretrip? I’m looking at accuweather and weather.com and both have starkly different predictions (10-20 degrees different). What is your favorite and most accurate website? *note on accuweather I had to search “rock harbor lodge” and on weathe...

Re: 10 days / 9 night food plan

Yes. I’ve been sick of cliff bars lately. So we have some “kind bars” this time. They should work for the longer days. I crave chocolate on the trail which is why we have candy usually. Not sure why bc I hardly eat sweets at home. We had lots of blueberries last year around the same time. Looking fo...

Re: First time to IR - a couple of questions. TIA!

The campsites are off the ridges and in wooded areas. You'll be fine in a storm. Just pay attention to overhanging limbs (wid...

I know one is not enough, but will 2 be enough to do a pack tent, 2 packs, bags and clothing for 2 for a week - my clothing list i...
