Olympic Peninsula

Mount Townsend - Olympic National Forest

I wanted to share a little something from one of our recent hikes. My absolute favorite thing to do is to get outdoors and hike, camp, back pack, etc. Throw a camera in and I'm in heaven. Mount Townsend is one of the closest and most rewarding climbs we've done on the Olympic Peninsula. It was pretty difficult but the views were an awesome payoff all along the way. There is 360 degrees of awesome views. THIS. RIGHT. HERE. is why we are so drawn to the PNW so it was good to get out and back to basics for an afternoon.  With a more crazy work pace this year I've really lost some of my hiking chops so I hope to be sharing many more family trips like this :)

ps: Yes, Brian did wear shoes :)
