Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

High Pass Trail: A Photo Essay

Spring is on its way but I’m already excited for summer because it means more hiking and camping trips!  A few summers back, when BF and I were just friends and hiking buddies, we planned a day hike out to High Pass Trail. The trailhead for the 3 mile one-way path starts at Twin Lakes in the Northern Cascade Range and traverses along an avalanche chute before a steep scramble up to Mount Larrabee.  We hiked along beautiful, glacier-fed lakes, through wooded forest, up to alpine meadows, and hills of shale at the summit.  Though it was rough in spots, it was worth the views!  Generally the pass is only free of snow (i.e. open to us since we don’t have ice gear) for a few weeks each year, so we got there just at the right time.

    Beautiful pictures! I’m reminded of the hike we took on the Austrian alps some years ago. 😉

    You’ve just added another item onto my list of goals for the year. 😀

    The last photo, with the sun, is breathtaking.

      Do it!! You won’t regret it. There’s another trail there that forks off to a 1930’s fire lookout up on Winchester Mountain. I was going to write about that in a later posting. Definitely check it out while you’re in the area! 🙂
