Backpacking trip this weekend...

This weekend is going to be my first official backpacking trip! I'm actually pretty excited about it. We're hiking up to Boulder Lake in the Cascades. The hike is a little under 4 miles each direction...with an elevation gain of 2,500 ft.

The only kind of camping I've ever really done is car camping, with a cooler full of drinks, an air mattress to sleep on and usually a nearby restroom! This is definitely going to be different.

Jason is really into hiking & backpacking, and I never have been. So, I'm looking forward to the weekend and will hopefully have lots of pictures to post next week.
