Back outdoors after a week of “outdoor” trade show

Back outdoors after a week of “outdoor” trade show

The semi-annual Outdoor Retailer trade show has wrapped up once again, and I wasted little time in throwing off the "convention center" blues by diving back into the outdoors. After 3-days of immersion in outdoor gear, it was good to get back into the backcountry to remind myself what that show is really all about. Donna and I headed up into Mount Rainier National Park early Saturday morning. We hiking the popular trail from Mowich Lake to Spray Park then went cross country, exploring the far-flung coves of Spray Park, dropping into Mist Park and climbing up onto Hessong Rock and Mount Pleasant. A wonderfully relaxing work out in the wildflower-rich high country of Mount Rainier's northwest corner. A few pictures from the day can be viewed here
