This week I took a 25 mile loop 3 day solo backpacking trip into the Goat Rocks wilderness area in the Cascade mountain range in Washington. Such a beautiful location. It was a very hard climb (at least for me). I also recently purchased a light-weight plein air painting set-up from ProlificPainter.com and was anxious to try it out. It was a pretty amazing trip, with gorgeous sweeping vistas, and beautiful wildflowers in bloom.
