We’re taking a break from posting weddings to share some personal photos from a recent hike. The first weekend we had off after wedding season, we packed the car and headed to the mountains to make the most of it. We hiked with 2 full backpacks (because we needed to have luxuries like coffee and bacon in the morning), slept a couple nights in freezing temperatures, woke up to snow,¬†hiked around 20 miles total, and marveled at the beauty that is Washington state. This is the most scenic hike we’ve ever done and we can’t wait to do it again in the summertime.

We hope you’re all enjoying Thanksgiving with your families and friends.
