Indian Heaven

christopher had been itching to get out into the back country so last weekend we headed towards trout lake to cultus creek where we started our trek up to deep lake in the indian heaven wilderness.
my backpack felt really good and the hike up was so doable.

we hiked with christopher's buddy, merritt, who carried a monster pack. found out his wife barbara sent him off with a ton of food!

i was so relieved that we never got wet from the rain. we only had to endure the pitter patter of rain on our tent as we slept thru the night. i was averaging 10-12 hours a sleep a night. oh yeah, super chill weekend.
it was so beautiful up there even though the fog was persistent. did manage to see mt. adams from deep lake late saturday afternoon.

love this shot of christopher's reflection....

as we drove out sunday morning i snapped a photo of the beautiful fall foliage. the colors were amazing! there were amazing red leaves too down the road, but they turned out blurry.

here is a final shot of mt. adams as we were leaving.
