It's not every weekend we find ourselves stranded in perilous danger, on the brink certain death. :) Our last trip had a close call, but thanks to good camping karma and some extremely friendly people, we made it home safe with nothing more than a good story to show for it!
The temperatures around Seattle have been stuck in the 60s - a welcome relief from winter, but still not warm enough for any kind of serious camping adventures. And then a troff of warm air (read: global warming) brought record breaking temperatures to the Pacific Northwest. With temps in the 90s, the high-country snowpack was disintegrating... and the rivers were quickly rising. What a great time to drive up into the mountains!
I think the video tells the story best, so watch it to find out what happens! ;)
Here's a shot from the clear cut area just below our campsite. It's always a little sad to see deforested areas, but the speed with which the area has regrown is impressive and very beautiful.
Our next post will be about our annual gay camping trip at Vantage, WA. This weekend we're heading back to the Olympic Peninsula, to discover the western most point in the United States! Can't Wait! Check back soon for more ScenicBoy's Adventures!
