Next Adventure....

So it didn't take long for the boys to be off on their next adventure. This one was steeper, higher, and longer, and according to Mike, "Not as much fun, because we couldn't slide down it!" There was very little snow, so they had to climb down, as well as up, which in all, took eleven hours.

They did have more company though, as Kellen joined them this trip for most of the trip. Here they are energized and ready to go at the beginning of the hike.


Seems he discovered he was a little out of shape with about a mile to go, so he rested his legs while Mike and Josh finished the trip. Unfortunately there was little shade where they left him, so he got a bit of extra sun, despite having copious amounts of sunscreen on already. That's the downside of being 6200' high!
That red dot Josh is pointing at is Kellen!
Looking down at Kellen (click on photo to be able to see red dot)!
From the top of Mt. Pugh they had a 360 degree view of many peaks in the beautiful Cascades. To the south was Mt. Rainier...
 Looking north at Mt. Baker...

And of course, for me, their "living dangerous" photos...

There's talk of one more trip before the end of the summer. Kellen is determined to peak with Mike this time. I look forward to sharing more of their incredible photos.
