Backpacking…Success

We made it to Orcas Island and scored a fantastic campsite overlooking the Sound and Obstruction Island. The weather was absolutely perfect, and it only took us two trips from the car to get all of our gear. The hike was not that difficult, thank goodness! I’m not saying it was easy, but with an extra 30 lbs on my back, I was super relieved that it was short and sweet.

So, highlights from the trip…

Our pup, Mia, wearing her backpack. No slackers in our group! She carried her own food, toys, and poop bags.

Yep, that's a white deer! Gotta love wildlife.

As you can see, this is a prime kayaking destination. Most kayakers were just staying for one night and moving on in the morning, so this meant new friends around our campfire each night.

I’m already excited for the next camping trip! I’m also pretty excited to have a cooler and a camping stove for the next one. More on that, and why we love camping so dang much later…

I hope you’re having a great week so far!
