Friday night I came back down from Vancouver, met Joshua up north and we drove straight to the trailhead. We planned on doing a fabulous 30 mile loop with amazing view and up close mountains. We headlamp hiked in about 2 miles and camped, woke up at 5:30 and started ascending.
Overall we backpacked about 14 miles and sometimes the way the clouds hug the mountaintops is just stunning. We capped it off with a stop at a Burger Shack in Darrington and a beer at a brewery there that had just opened. We'll get cha next time loop!
