I love this state

An easy hike to Blanca lake was anything but, as the 7.5 mile round-trip was significantly harder than expected. Weather was... Well. Peak PNW. Which is to say constant rain, moderately thick fog. The entire trail was either mud, snow, or rushing melt water. On the plus side the whole place was absolutely empty!

I hiked blind after losing my glasses, and given that... I just can’t comprehend how this ended up being the single hike of the season where I didn’t fall once. Go figure. (I found the glasses on the way down. Yeeeeeees).

No long post. Just some photos. I’m going to ask my friend to model for me next hike so I can practice a bit. I’d like to work on my photography skills. Let me know what you like. Or don’t like. Or how you’re doing. I’m home at last, and I think I earned a cider.

5 hours of sleep. 5 hours of hiking. This definitely qualifies as another one of our miserable hikes. Probably beats out Mailbox in that regard, although mostly just due to not having glasses lol
