Onwards!

Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Slade Lake, Washington, tent

Camping at Spade Lake, Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Washington.

Just as an update, a week ago we went on a 5-day backpack trip in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness of Washington — a big loop to Spectacle and Spade Lakes. After that we had hopes for a sunny weather forecast and another trek in Washington, but alas the weather deteriorated and the forecast for the next week was rain, rain, rain. Also if we wanted to stick to our loose schedule for the summer, the mid-July date said it was time to move on. So although there’s SO much more I had wanted to do in Washington, we hit the road again and are now in the Canadian Rockies! We’re in Fernie at the moment and plan to work our way north through the range for the next 3 weeks or so, of course doing lots of backpacking and hiking along the way.

As we continue traveling and backpacking on our big summer road trip, I’ve realized that it’s unfeasible to keep this blog up to date with my photos and trip reports. So, unfortunately, just as we’re starting to get into the more exciting backpacking trips, the photos and reports will have to wait until autumn when we’re back… or perhaps until some long rainy down days… but hopefully that won’t happen too often!

  1. It’s very hard to keep up the blog while traveling.
    I’m hardly online when I travel. There’s so much to do and see!
    I wish you a safe and fun journey, with lots of adventures and photo opportunities.
    Looking forward to see your results 🙂

    1. Thanks Yair! Normally I like to post my trip reports asap, to get my thoughts down while the memories are fresh; but you’re right, when we’re doing back-to-back trips and with so much to do and see there’s just no time for processing photos and writing on the blog!
