Climbing Mt. Adams

 

Yoga from camp

As I write this, my face feels like it’s melting off, my scalp is burnt and my neck and chest are beginning to itch.

But definitely worth it. (Well I’m sure I’ll think so in 3-4 days)

This past Saturday myself and himself decided to hike Mt. Adams. And no, it wasn’t just a last minute thing – this is something we had been talking about for a while.

I love these summer weekends. They really are so much fun! Labor Day weekend was no different. Seattle was another random, sort of last minute trip that was planned at the tail end of California. Myself and Korey decided to head to Seattle for a couple days to catch the beginning of Bumbershoot.

It was great catching up with Wes and his wife Carla who I’d met when I lived in New York back in 2011. It had been so long so it was great to catch up! We went to the Sarajevo Lounge for some drinks and food – which was DELICIOUS!! The service was amazing and I would 100% go back for the food! I’m very much looking forward to returning for round 2 with these guys. Korey picked me up after a little while and we took a spin around Capital Hill stopping before heading back to the hotel.
