Summer Hiking in Washington

Crystal Lakes Trail 2016

We’re in the middle of a series of big storms over here in Washington, if you haven’t heard. Meaning it’s been rainy and windy for about 4 days straight and should continue throughout the next week. I say bring it on. My running routine might need to take a temporary pause, but it gives me more time indoors to catch up on photography and cooking to-dos that have lingered on the list. Plus, I’ve (finally) finished editing my hiking photos from the summer (I know, I know!).

Today I’m giving some much needed love to the Compass side of Kale & Compass. Let’s all pause to enjoy the scenery a bit. These sunny-days-of-summer photos make me really happy to look at, especially now, on this rainy dreary Sunday afternoon. Enjoy!
