Yesterday's hike was on the Pacific Crest Trail at Chinook Pass near the northeast corner of Mt. Rainier. The weather was awesome and I was actually able to hike in shorts and a t-shirt until the last mile when I put on my raincoat because I was suddenly freezing and it was raining just a bit. I can knock another 6 miles off the PCT (12 round trip). More pictures below and here.
I like this picture because it shows what we were hiking into - a nice sounding thunderstorm. It got very cool when we turned the corner, but we didn't get wet. Well, we didn't get wet there.
Here is a picture of the trail. Trail pictures make we want to hike. I always want to know what is around that corner.
