Day tripping the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Washington, USA

Another beautiful warm sunny summer day in Washington- let’s go hiking!


Headed out with a friend and co-worker from Morocco- no idea what kind of shape he’s in, so decided we’d start with the easy hike to Talapus Lake and see how it went.


Beautiful Talapus Lake!


Ibrahim was keen to press on, so on we went!


I thought we’d head to Pratt Lake, but when we reached the junction to the Mount Defiance Trail we decided to hang a left and go check out Island and Rainbow Lakes. Got a bit steep in spots, but Ibrahim powered on!


Rainbow Lake- no better spot to enjoy a Black Raven Trickster IPA ^_^

Adios Rainbow Lake- would be fun to come back here for an overnight!
