Summer Update: Group Trip

  Just finished up a 7 day loop hike with some friends.  We had a mixed bag of weather; from winds to heavy rain and even some lightning.  Did some peak bagging, sections of off trail in the alpine and a handful of mountain passes.  It was great sharing the Olympics with friends I've known for awhile on the internet.  Getting them all together to do a backpacking trip was just awesome.

Note:  All photos and trips reports will be released Winter 2013 in a multi-part series titled 'Walking through the Seasons'.
