We are home from a fun, but interesting trip. Fun as we saw lots of beautiful country and did a couple of wonderful backpacking trips. Interesting as in the weather. Our past trips during that time of year to the same areas often featured highs in the 90’s. I teased my buddy Patrick a bit for bringing a down jacket, but in the end, I regretted not having mine. This year we had more rain, cold weather and even snow then we would have back home of the Alaska Coast! Pretty crazy, but it did lead to some unique photo opps!
