This had been a beautiful summer in Seattle. We broke the record of highest temperature and if anyone was counting, we must have also broken the record for highest number of sunny days. If it was not for yesterday, I was almost forgetting what a cloudy day looks like. Needless to mention, with warm sunny summer days, comes the opportunities for hiking. It has been full on this season, going away almost every weekend. I already have 4 backpacking trips, including Enchantments and 3 day hikes under my belt, not to mention Rock'n'Roll full marathon which though has nothing to do with summer, I would have ran it even if it was raining. Hopefully there are more to come and we will be hiking well into October, don't we just love global warming!!
