Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Hiking, Me

Friends keep friends afloat

Whenever I feel down in the dumps (which has been much too often lately), I give in to my introverted marmot tendencies and retreat into a depressing hibernation mode. I eschew all social activities, preferring instead to mope around alone (well, often accompanied by chocolate), feeling sorry for myself.

Oh Flytepacker, how I've missed you

This has led to many a missed adventure, especially this summer. Fortunately my friends are patient, forgiving, and incredibly kind. And, magically, they are able to turn a somewhat mundane hike along I90 into one of the best afternoons I have had in a long time.

Thanks, friends, for not letting me sink.

Friends. I like 'em.

    Snow Lake isn’t mundane! It’s just often over-run with people. Glad you saw the lake and floated some…. Miss the berries.

    I agree. Snow Lake is a stunning basin with lots of views, berries, and other opportunities. It is a great place to cheer up.
