One of the reasons I'm able to live in a city like Seattle—it's incredibly easy to escape on the weekends. ⠀
Walking to shops and stores is convenient, hoping on the bus is easy, and choosing from a variety of breweries is fun. But, it's still the city. It's busy. It's loud. It's crowded. It'd be really hard to live in, if not for the closeness of the mountains.⠀
Last weekend, we were able to hop in our cars after work, and got on the trail Friday evening. Though we made it to our campsite by the light of our headlamps, we were rewarded the next day with views like this.
