With Henning newly retired, and me on a reduced workload, we were able to get away during the week to explore the Skagit and Chilliwack Valleys and Manning Park. Cheap camping next to the river or lake, with few campers around; cool, crisp days with (or without) the warmth of the autumn sun; and spectacular yellow, red and orange splashes in the forest made for some great fall hiking.
