Random Road Trips: A Day In the North Cascades.
(Photographer - Michael LaMartin)
Didn’t have any plans yesterday afternoon, so my friend Bethany and I hopped in the car and drove east. Rainy days and “bad weather” make for a great time to visit normally overpopulated national parks. A few common lookouts, and a few hidden spots that required some mini mud hikes and climbs. Overall, a great, beautiful day.
