Mt. Baker Wilderness

If someone would have told me a couple years ago that I would be hiking through the forests and mountains of Washington state with a pack on my back and a camera around my neck, I would have told them they were probably mistakin' me for someone else - or they needed to pour themselves another drink.  Waterproof hiking boots, Camelbaks (huh?), bug spray, Cliff Bars and frequent trips to REI.  Actually getting excited (most of the time) about hitting the road at 6 AM on a Saturday morning.  Yup.  That girl is me.  2010 has been an incredible year, as I've been to some of the most amazing places - like the one in this shot of the Cascade Mountain Range from Mt. Baker, looking down at the clouds.  Can't wait for spring.
