  • Over the mountains and through the clouds ☁️ ________________________________ We braved flooded trails and slippery rocks all the way to the first summit. Unfortunately there were no views at the top and we were surrounded by clouds. The second summit was better and the rain had stopped, but that meant muddy trails....like really muddy. At one point @sweet_as_candie_ plunged in and had mud up to her chin. I also fell victim to a mud puddle and one of my boots was completely eaten...so much for my new boots. We spent the night at a tent site which was a first for us. Usually we stealth camp which means you make your own site, and left Sunday morning to hit two more summits. This hike definitely had more "uphill climbing" than most of our other hikes, but personally I kind of enjoyed it. It is more difficult when you have 30lbs on your back, but it's better than long uphill walking. The view at the last summit was my favorite. You could see Washington and Monroe fading in and out of the clouds. You also had a really cool view of the ridge connecting the mountain we were on to the next, I have some better pictures of that I'll share later. In total we did 4 summits (one 3K footer and three 4K footers). This hike was shorter only 12 miles or so but lots of rock scrambling and slippery trails made for a slower pace. Ego and I are probably in the best shape of our lives and I'm already planning mini roadtrips to hike because I didn't spend all that money on backpacking gear to let it sit for the rest of the year! (Ego also earned the title of "Most photogenic dog" from people on the trails and people in the hiking groups we joined. No one gave me a cool title. I'm offended.) ________________________________ #bordercollie #theglobewanderer #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogsthathike #9gag #spacewheel #mountainstones #nikonnofilter #PS_Celebrate #weeklyfluff #hikingwithdogs #bestwoof #thevisualcollective #animalsco #animaladdicts #ruffpost #buzzfeedanimals #thisweekoninstagram #ig_myshots #lensbible #visualsoflife #thedodo #nikond810 #viewbug #folkgreen #campingwithdogs #optoutside #barked #ourplanetdaily
