Silver Lakes

Third Beach Camping

My first backpacking trip without a guy to depend on! Even though it was a short trip, I’m still proud of myself. Because if I can do it…any girl can! Organized by my dear friend Monica and her friend Arriana, accompanied by my old high school friend Courtney, we had a crazy awesome time! While …

Lake Ozette/Cape Lava Round 2

Marmot Pass

I’m really missing these three people right now, so hence the inspiration to get this entry up.

By far the best weather I’ve had camping out there. I love camping at Rialto because you can backpack …

Welcoming Spring: Deer Lake and La Push Day Adventure
