North Cascades Weekend
Sunday, October 07, 2012
We headed over the lovely North Cascades Hwy Friday morning to get to the top of the highest road in WA and Slate Peak Lookout and do some hiking where the larch trees needles are turning golden before dropping. We explored the Pacific Crest Trail from a few places near Hart's Pass Road. It's so beautiful right now with the fall colors.
We stayed in the old west style town of Winthrop in a great room with a private deck with a view of mountains and a field that deer stay in at night.
Saturday we did a somewhat difficult, but only 5 miles, hike to Goat Peak Lookout then we made the long scenic drive home.
I didn't stick to my diet while we were gone but I didn't pig out either. Today I am back to it and getting my chores done and healthy food ready for the week.
I haven't had much time for Sparkpeople but am living healthier than I have in a long time.
