First Backpacking Trip
Andrew and I tried out our backpacking gear last weekend. It was our first overnight backpacking trip by ourselves. We hiked 4 miles to Hannegan Pass and then another mile to Boundary Camp right inside the North Cascades National Park. Our campsite was right near the Chilliwack River. The hike was really pretty, with lots of wildflowers and great views. It was fun to be together outside and enjoying the scenery. It was a good level of difficulty for us, nice and easy for Andrew and right near the top of the limit for me! All in all it was a good way to break in our gear and see how we did on our own.
