North Bend, WA - September 2017
Trevor and I climb the Ira Spring Memorial trail to Mason Lake, a beautiful mountain lake in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie Mountain range. The trail boasts a 2,420 foot gain in just over 3 miles. It was extremely difficult, but a beautiful trail that I could hike most of barefoot and a bracing lake swim made for a great payoff. Later, the sunset walk down the trail was the true highlight.
