Plains of Abraham for an Almost Full Moon

Knowing that I always regret it if we don't take advantage of a backpackable summer weekend, we headed out to Mount Saint Helens to camp on the Plains of Abraham.  Despite the heat, despite the humidity, and despite the smoggy sky due to forest fires, we had a wonderful trip.  As is often the case, we passed lots of hikers who were leaving the trail just as we were getting started.  We had the plains all ourselves.  The almost full moon that we'd hoped to see was obscured by smoke, but colors in the sky were beautiful.  A short trail run the following morning, a quick dip in icy cold waters, and lunch at Battle Mountain Brewing... the weekend was a win.
