After what has felt like years of begging him for more backpacking trips, the boyfriendo finally initiated a trip on his own!
Once I returned from my awesome Cali roadtrip in June, I knew I had to buckle down and hit the trails to prepare for an August summit of Mount St. Helens. Next up was one of the areas most-loved conditioning hikes–Mount Townsend.
Sometimes, a hike is more about the activity than the destination. Some hikes offer thrilling views at the end, others offer views along the way and just…come to a stop. It sounds anti-climactic, but can still offer some great time in nature.
