A confused day of random hikes

After making plans to go on an overnight with a friend, we departed with a goal of visiting White Mountain near Glacier Peak. After about 2.5 miles of walking we ran into another hiker that had just attempted the same hike but had to turn around due to snow conditions. We didn’t have our axes or spikes so we decided that we should return to the car and knock off a few other hikes instead.

First stop: Big Four Ice Caves!

Please note… nobody should ever go in them… people have died here before. I would never go in them myself…. unless I had a camera!

Next Stop was going to be Mount Index, but a USFS gate (I am starting to dislike them greatly) blocked the path. so we went to Blanca Lake- a very popular hike with a jaw dropping view of glacial dust filled water. It is the only place I have let out an audible gasp when I saw it.

Been a busy week, so I am finally catching up 🙂
