BUT. LONG STORY SHORT. Just before the new year, we did your annual winter backpacking (short trip--three days, two nights, ~7 miles a day, which is, what. 1/3 of the mileage you'd have to break, 30 days in a row, to do the PCT? XD WE'RE READY) and it was excellent. On the second day we day hiked out to a natural hot springs, which was pretty epic, all told. All I want now is our next adventure. (Colorado/Utah/Arizona, anyone???!)
Then I met my sister's boyfriend (he's cool) and he met my grandmother (lol).
Let this first sequence of photos also stand as testament to my undying desire for an episode that requires multi-day backcountry camping of Sam and Dean, thanks. Or fanworks. But come on, now. The PacNW was built for this shit.
And I mean, added incentive--hot springs.
♥ you all~
