There’s not much to say, except that this hike, for me, defines hiking in the Pacific Northwest. Lush, green forest gives way to alpine meadows to bare, wind-scrubbed mountain tops. The views are non-stop and the energy is incredible.
This was also my first solo overnight backpacking trip, sleeping under the stars.
It is extremely hard to pick a favorite photo from this trip, because the scenery was just too good.
