Went on a short hike with Tim, Lisa, and Lucy on Saturday. Nice to get out, even on a crowded trail. The mass of people stopped at the falls, and it was peace and quiet beyond that for a while before we decided to turn around.
Went backpacking over the weekend at Ingalls Creek up near Leavenworth for some much needed self-reflection. The drone of the creek, as loud as it was with all the winter snow coming down from the mountains, actually turned out to be pretty peaceful, and was only interrupted by the occasional camera click. Although, it sure didn’t make it easy with the camera gear making my pack weigh nearly fifty pounds. That was stupid heavy.
Definitely glad I brought it with me, though, since being away from the city and its lights and being high up in the mountains paid off with a nice view of the Milky Way.
