For those of you who didn't know, KingCrazyLegs and ScarlotteDorian have been chillin' with me for a little over a week. Last Thursday we went on a backcountry camping & hiking trip in Olympic National Park, home to some of the only surviving temperate rainforest left in the world.

This link will take you to my photos from the trip. On each page is a link to the next album, I have them separated that way because we visited several different places. Some of the file sizes are a little on the large size, sorry. Here are a couple of my favorite pics:

Gah, I was looking through and it seems like several pictures didn't get uploaded for some reason... this is one of them:



for y'all that don't know, Mt. Rainier is 14,410 feet (I think it's the 2nd highest in the lower 48)... the little "hills" around it? yeah, that's the Cascade Mountain Range. It looks pretty in photos but until you see it in person you really can't imagine just how awe inspiring-- and fuckin' HUGE-- it is.

Hmm, I'm not sure which picture you mean... ?? There were no silos anywhere, but there were a TON of rock "islands".

I think Z was talking about those things under Mt Ranier. They kind of look like water towers.

Oh!

Yeah, those are water towers, if I remember correctly. That's a tiny little tip of Bainbridge Island.
