Mt. Adams 2012

Seth has been training for Mt. Rainier, which he already did weeks ago, but I have been going on plenty of training hikes with him. I am too much of a pansy to do Rainier so we went and did Adams for fun. It was a blast! Seth, nicknamed Sherpa Seth, carried up 2 sleeping bags and two tents (2man and 3man) plus all his other gear! He is crazy strong.  Its been a long time since I posted. We are going through all our pics and adding them to an external hard drive so our entire summer isn't on here and I've got better things to do than go look for it. But here are pics from Mt. Adams. Luckily, this time no one was severely sunburned. We will go again in a few weeks. Its a really fun trip and gives you a taste of altitude.
