I’ve been a bit busy jumping from adventure to adventure. I have a lot I want to share on my blog, but do not have the time right now! I appreciate everyone who has stuck around through these consistent dry spells. Here’s a little bit of what I’ve been up to:
I have been fortunate enough to go backpacking 7 times so far this year, logging more backpacking miles than I ever have in previous years!
1. Ancient Lakes, Eastern Washington. April 2018
Multiple waterfalls on this easy hike in
Met these lovely ladies for the first time! Laura and Paige joined us for the weekend
2. Mount Baker, Washington. May 2018
I had just got back from Thailand and needed some nature therapy.
This is the first time I camped with my sister and her boyfriend 🙂
And of course Brenna was down to join!
