Adam and I love "being away". A common "away" for us is the area around Glacier, WA. Primarily, we love getting to the Baker area for snowboarding purposes - but the area has tons of summer fun to offer too.
Most recently, we completed the chain lakes hike! You can make this hike into an overnight event but we just travelled as a day trip. With a bit of wandering and a quick summit of Table Mountain, my iPhone 'health' app says we trekked about 19km.
Highlights: Great weather, awesome views of Baker and Shuksan, glaciers, meadows, forests and lakes!
