It was a bit wet and cold yesterday depending on where you hiked. Did you get rained on? It won't be long until the fall colors make their way down the mountains.

What's your favorite Leave No Trace tip to share with other hikers? One of ours is that you should walk through mud on the trail rather than go around it to avoid creating new trails and trampling foliage. Share yours in the comments!

Our annual photo contest, Northwest Exposure, is in full swing! You can get more info and enter your shots at wta.org/photocontest (link in bio). This photo was the winner from last year's Camp Life category, taken by Andrew Koehn at Hidden Lake. Andrew's wife, Josefin, was reading in the tent when he took this photo. It was their final trip as a couple before the birth of their daughter. Andrew thinks it’s important for photographers to remember to live in the moment, not always through the lens. “I try to practice ‘opportunistic’ photography as a hiker first, a photographer second. To me, a camera is a great way to capture a memory, but a photo should be a memento of that great experience,“ he says. This photo now hangs above his bed as a sweet reminder. “The grandeur of wilderness provides inspiration and perspective to my life. It is refreshing to remember during stressful times that such places of serenity exist and are accessible to those who seek them." #washingtontrails #photocontest #camping #backpacking #hiking #pnw #pacificnorthwest #washington #trail #tent

We had a great hike up to Franklin Falls earlier this week with the Forest Service, nonprofit partners, and staff from a number of WA congressional offices. We discussed the importance of recreation funding and protecting our public lands. We're excited to continue working together to make it easier for everyone to explore our amazing trails!

Looks like another warm weekend coming up. Pack some extra water and hike to a location where you can cool off!
