Summer is for Hiking

I've been doing a lot of hiking this summer. By August, I'd already logged over 120 miles of backcountry covered by foot. Between that, work, and going back to school, there hasn't been too much time to post and go through photos. Once winter rears its head, there should be plenty of time. I'm looking at putting together a book as well, as these recent adventures through nature have made a lasting impression and helped me to really understand myself.

Until then, here's a marmot being ridiculously photogenic in front of Mt. Rainier on a recent hike to Summerland and the Panhandle Gap.
