We spent four days in Washington visiting my brother, Tony, and exploring a couple of the state's awesome mountains. This post is mostly photos of mountains...

My brother sent me a pin for where to camp. Google auto corrected his location and then led us up a logging road that was closed, but the caption on the photo led us here. A very nice spot, but still not the right one.

Found it on the third attempt after getting turn by turn directions directly from the source. Definitely a spot worth finding. 

Pretty good view from inside the camper too.

Sunsetting on Mt Shuksan

Roasted string cheese by the fire.  

One of the main advantages of staying in a National Forest is that Tony could bring his Australian Shepherd Loki

It seemed a little odd to leave Alaska in summer to tour massive snow fields in Washington, but it's a lot of fun hiking through 20 feet of snow when it's sunny and 75 degrees out. 

Corrie in front of Mt Baker at the top of our climb. 

The other side of Shuksan.

Loki was a little skeptical of crossing this pond.

He's a pretty smart dog...

Another clear night at the base of Mt Shuksan
 We had good light for our evening tour of Mt Saint Helens:
