Outdoor Fun in the Pacific Northwest
Here's some pictures of my friends and I having lots of fun outdoors! Note that I didn't take all of these pictures. Some of them were taken by Rob, Seth, and Michal.
Troublesome Creek Campground, Lake Serene/Bridal Veil Falls Hike, September 12-13, 2003:
Rob, Brian, Erin, and I went camping at the Troublesome Creek campground near Index, and then we met up with Michal and Chen-Je to hike the Lake Serene/Bridal Veil Falls trail again. We decided that we wanted to do the hike again in nice weather. (See below for pictures of the hike when it's not so nice...) Both the campground and the hike were awesome, particularly for being so close to Seattle.

Steamboat Rock State Park, September 5-6, 2003:
Michal, Rob, Brian and I went camping at the Steamboat Rock State Park in Eastern Washington. Our campsite turned out to be more like suburbia than a rustic campground. It had mowed lawns, showers, and coke machines. Luckily, we were able to go for a pretty cool hike in Northrop Canyon while we were there. Here's some pictures from the hike:

Gifford Pinchot National Forest August 22-24, 2003:
Michal, Seth, Rob and I headed towards the Gifford Pinchot National Forest for some camping and stayed at the Trout Lake campground. The campground was a really nice one. Not very crowded and near some really great hiking. On the first day, we hiked to Middle and Lower Falls on the Lewis River. Then, on the second day, we hiked up to Council Bluff where we got views of Mount Adams, Mount Hood, Mount St Helens and Mount Rainier! There were so many great pictures from this trip that I put most of them on another page. Here's the basics:

Baker Lake August 2003:
Rob and I decided to head to the North Cascades for some camping and ended up at the Boulder Creek campground near Baker Lake. It was fabulous, except for the mosquitoes. I had more than 50 bites by the end of the weekend!

Bridal Veil Falls/Lake Serene Hike May 17, 2003:
A spring hike that felt more like a winter hike...

Whistler Winter 2002/2003:
This was our first Whistler trip after Rob got his digital camera all of these pictures were taken by him. Makes me want to ski RIGHT NOW!
