    SAN JUAN ISLANDS

    GO TO SAN JUAN ISLANDS. The island of Friday Harbor is the most beautiful place I've ever experienced. Drive along the southwest coast, stop on the pull offs and see orcas with Vancouver Island off in the horizon. And also stop to pick wild blackberries if in season. It's heaven (rent scooters if you want to make it even more fun).


    Take the ferry from Anacortes.


    Seriously, San Juan Islands, you can't skip them.

    Glad to hear you say that! We're going backpacking in North Cascades in late June and ending the trip by going to San Juan Island to kayak "with" the orcas. Hoping for some close encounters!

    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    ^All amazing photos and I have nothing like that but every backcountry camping spot kicks ass to me.

    San Juans a week ago. We did 7800 at the car then backpacked to 10,200 then 11,200 followed by 11,800. The 11,800 morning I woke up and my head was throbbing. The last two days and nights were endless downhills. High point was 12,600. We bailed on a summit attempt because of super short weather windows aka monsoon season.

    10,200
