Sunset on Mt Daniel ✨

Right after we climbed the snowfield and made it to the top of the gap, we were met by this incredible alpine lake. What a beaut!

Descending the snow field at sunrise ☀️ 

Woke up to the most beautiful (and slightly smoky) sunrise in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. We were the only ones sleeping on top of the ridge line, and woke up extra early to start our 13 miles back to the car. Post-trail pizzas and beer well deserved. 🍻

Spent some time in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness a few weeks ago up in Washington 🏕 

This area had been on our short-list for quite sometime. Reid has been wanting to go back ever since he jet through the area on the PCT, and I’ve always wanted to explore the trails for incredible views and alpine lakes. 

We spent two nights out here, one at this incredibly turquoise lake, and the other on top of the ridge line you can see behind the trees and above the snow field.

Over the past 4 days we finished hiking the Rae Lakes Loop, a 40 mile trail in Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park. 

This hike has been on our short list for a few years now. We completed the loop counterclockwise, hiking about 13 miles (with 5000 feet of gain) on just the first day. 

Sections of the trail were exposed and hot, but cooled down every afternoon as the thunderstorms rolled into the Sierra. It dumped rain for about an hour at a time, and the thunder roared down the canyon walls. 

After reaching the top of Glen Pass on the second day, we finally got a glimpse of Rae Lakes. We reached the lakes as the clouds were gathering, and took a quick dip in Middle Rae before making camp. After a nap in the tent and a few handfuls of gummy bears, the storm passed. 

We spent the evening roaming around the lakes, watching people fly fish for trout and observed the storm clouds. They lingered through the night and into the next morning, parting slightly to let the sun in. 🏕

Nothing beats summer in the PNW🌸 

The past week I have been back home in Washington visiting family. Over the weekend, we managed to squeeze in a small sunset hike just outside of Mt Rainier National Park. 

I wasn’t expecting to see many wildflowers with the high snow levels that the Northwest got over the winter, and boy was I wrong. We reached the summit about 20 minutes before sunset and was greeted by Rainier, and the most beautiful wildflower fields I’ve ever seen. What a place. ✨
