A certain social media site reminded me this week about a five year memory of my trip to the Goat Rocks Wilderness in Washington and offered this photo. It was just a two day backpacking trip but it was a good one. I hiked in and camped in a clump of trees on the edge of gorgeous alpine meadows. The second day was one of the best days I’ve had scrambling in a stunning setting, peeling off of the PCT to bag both Old Snowy and Ives, with plenty of rock hopping along the way, including a sketchy talus slope traverse. Good memory. Thanks, Facebook. I need to return.
