We left on the morning of July 4th for a nice four-day camping trip near the North Cascades.
Here are some of my Instagram pics of our little adventure.
Working on a sample of the Zigzag Socks on the way
(the yarn is Sundara Sock in South Seas--a skein given to me by a friend about four years ago and finally being knit up)
After setting up the tent in our nicely wooded site...
...we found a big, beautiful meadow for a walk and great views of the foothills of the North Cascades.
The weather was gorgeous for us the whole time.
Second day camping we went for a hike up the east bank of Baker Lake, which included a view of Mt Baker, of course!
The hike was through very lush, ferny forest with huge trees and lots of old growth.
Back at camp I worked on the Zigzag a bit and we tried to ward off mosquitoes. At one point we had three coils burning, a couple of citronella candles burning, and we were both sprayed down with repellent. I still have lots of bites. It's been since moving here from the South ten years ago that I've had mosquito bites.
I still hate it!
This lovely camping trip, which was only slightly marred by the bugs, was at Rasar State Park here in WA state. I recommend this park very highly. It's very well maintained, safe and secure, and has tent camping sites and hookup sites for campers and motor homes and even some walk-ins. There are tons of little trails, some of which lead down along the Skagit River. It's a good place to camp with kids, too. We saw lots of them having a blast.
When we returned home our snow pea vines had been busy!
And we had received this present from the grandtwins for our birthdays.
We had such a good time. I hope your fourth was good and that your weekend went well.
Ain't summertime grand?
