Just got back from hiking trip to North Cascades and have attached a few pictures. A few more will follow later. Had such an excellent time. Loved tenting. And the views hiking could not be beat. There are so many more trails and campgrounds I want to investigate there. Several times I just stopped and thanked Jehovah God for being so creative and artistic in ability, because visually it was outstanding.
At one point, I was warned that a thunderstorm was coming with 60 mile per hour winds (100 km), so we hunkered down on the shores of Lake Chelan. I have to say of all the places I visited on this trip, this was the one that captured my heart the most..close behind was Mazama...or maybe tied actually. The hiking was incredible in both places, and each morning when I opened the tent door and saw the view it felt like my breath was being taken away - such a gorgeous area in an awe inspiring way. Gave me lots of moments for deep thought about where I have come from and where I am going as a person. I highly recommend both places to anyone - Washington state so not too far. You can see one of my hiking partners is enjoying his pillow time too, as well as the other one is collapsed on her pillow inside.
