So we have gone camping a few times this summer and people always ask how my weekend was at work
I say: good we went camping and did lots of hiking
they say: o backpacking or car camping
them: o just car, ok
that's when we first realized maybe we weren't doing something northwesty quite right
then on the hike this Sunday we were saying hi to other hikers coming down the mountain and
they said: hi
we said: hi
they said: how's it going? Just going on a little day hike?
us after they left: little day hike, we're doing 10 miles in an afternoon up a mountain, dang it are we hiking wrong too? we hiked yesterday too?
so that's when we realized we also hike wrong. Guess we'll have to get backpacking equipment to stay relevant out here :) It became a fun joke as more people passed us we'd look to each other after they were gone and say- o ya know we're lame just on a little day hike.
Haha, we weren't gloomy about it, promise, mostly just thought it was funny because we had no idea that our version of camping and hiking and still going the same amount of miles would be viewed as lame. Too bad we love it our way and we're cheap!
so Sunday we day hiked Hannegan's Peak
We got a later start so that the clouds would burn off and we could see the 360 view of mountains that's so great about hiking in Mt Baker area. The craggly ones off in the distance are our favorite and the bugs weren't so bad on this hike so we had a really great time and lounged a bit.
