Packwood Lake, WA

Packwood Lake, WA

Two weekends in a row of sister time, what a treat!!

Lex flew up on Friday after work for a quick weekend trip, and had her heart set on trying out backpacking. It's pretty early season, with LOTS of snow and lots of mud most places, so I wasn't sure what we would find... but after checking lots of trip reports and calling a few ranger stations, I finally found something interesting and not muddy.

Holy cow am I glad we tried it out, Packwood Lake was so pretty! We hit a little bit of stormy weather on the hike out, but a tiny bit of rain isn't a bit deal when you're protected by mossy old growth forest. Once we got to the lake and checked out the camp spot options, things started to clear up, and we had lots of time to bask in the sunshine from our campsite.
