WOW Washington, can you get any prettier? This week, I went on 6 hikes!! First, I went to Mount Rainier National Park and hiked Burroughs Mountain and Freemont Lookout... in the same day! Talk about a day in Paradise, literally!! Next, I decided to face my fears and walk the walk on the Kendall Katwalk, which is part of the Pacific Crest Trail! Did you know that this path spans from Mexico to Canada? I met someone who was backpacking the whole thing - amazing! Then, I decided to explore Mason Lake and Mount Defiance - again summiting 2 hikes in the same day!! This trail is located in the Cascades and is challenging, but definitely worth it. While chasing those mountain and lake views, I was telling myself, "You can do this, one step at a time!" Lastly, I went to Gothic Basin, which is located off of Mountain Loop Highway and is one of the most spectacular hikes I have ever been on!! What a great week - The Pacific Northwest is truly a beautiful place to call home.
