Grabbed a good weekend of car camping, river dipping and intense hiking with a group of Joshua's coworkers a few weekends ago. We headed out to Darrington and had some great camping sites. Kicked the weekend off right on Friday night with beers, fires, and a random assortment of chips. The next morning the rest of the group rolled in and we headed out to hike Painted (Red) Mountain. It isn't a well known hike so we actually had the entire thing to ourselves.
The next morning, sadly 2 left to go to urgent care for an arm injury, we made sausages and blueberry pies for breakfast. The sun was out and poppin so we headed to the river to jump in and play some Jerk The Gherkin (game invented on this hike) Got burgers and shakes at the local Burger Barn and headed home with tired legs and my skin a slightly darker shade of super pale.
