Myself, my gf, and one of my best friends went on a backpacking trip through the North Cascades here in Washington. If you’ve never been, it’s a truly incredible area. Lots of peaks, snow, alpine lakes, and the occasional mountain goat…though I wasn’t quick enough with the camera to catch the one we saw. We spent three days and two nights hiking around Aasgard Pass and Colchuck lake. Nearby is the Bavarian town of Leavenworth, which was a perfect spot to grab a post-backcountry beer or three.
