Meander Meadows Loop, WA

Took Backcountry Whit our for her very first backpacking adventure this weekend. Decided to try her on the 16 mile loop through Meander Meadows, Dishpan Gap, and Cady Ridge, quite the epic starter trip! Despite the crazy heat and awful bugs, it was awesome. Incredible views (Glacier, Rainier, and all the little peaks in between) and a nice alpine lake to swim in... I'm pretty sure we'll never do a summer hike without a lake again :)
