It's been awhile since I carried a pack, climbed a summit and camped in the mountains. I didn't realize how much I missed it.
This past weekend, Eva and I headed out for an overnight climb/hike of Earl and Bean Peaks in the Teanaway Mountains near Rosyln, WA. The weather was perfect, the views were spectacular and the time that we spent together was full of laughter.
