But my main squeeze and I decided to take a trip to Yosemite with my mom at the end of October. Only problem was the government went on strike and closed down the
Queue - cancelled plans. Rather than fly to Reno for our Yosemite trip and waste 4 days of PTO, we cancelled our flights and stayed in the PNW to do some hikes we've been eyeballing.
We also thought it was a good idea to bring our dogs. Turns out we suck at coming up with good ideas.
Anyhow - we conquered the Mt. Pilchuck hike. For you fellow PNWers - this is only a 4 mile hike but incredibly rewarding! See for yourself ;-)
Then we booked it to the coast and did an 8 mile coastal hike. Sounds nice right? Guess again. It was beautiful, but maybe for a couple of miles. But when you're hiking for 8 miles on a flat beach you realize the scenery doesn't change at all.
But regardless it was beautiful weather and I never pass up a chance to hang out with my handsome honey.
