    I know some guys here like THS like the outdoors so thought I'd share some pics I took. This is Multnomah Falls in a place called the Columbia Gorge in Oregon (FYI, I ain't no tree-hugging hippy, I just love a good hike in the great outdoors, i.e. pretty much anywhere in the Northwest)...

    Hey, I've been to Multnomah Falls before. It was badass, my mom has all the pics. Somewhere she's got them of me on the bridge and stuff.

    Pretty good stuff.

    Canada's East Coast, specifically Newfoundland, looks pretty much the same as Ireland. It's amazing out there, so quiet and peaceful.

    So hiking is something that you think only "tree-hugging hippies" should enjoy?

    Did I say that?

    No I was just implying that since the common misconception to east coasters are that the NW is full of peace-loving, tree-huggin, dirty, smelly hippies.

    Olympic National Park has some great hiking areas. Same with Rainer and even St. Helens.

    Word. My family is originally from Port Angeles and we have a cabin there so I'm right around that area all the time. Out by Forks is incredible.

    Me and a buddy are talking about going on a hike the week before Christmas for 7 days. We want snow and cold weather backpacking.

    What are some of the best parts to backpack?
    The most scenic?
    The most secluded?

    Any other knowledge you can share about it then lets hear it.

    Thanks
