Today was one of those amazing Northwest summer days. Sparkling azure sky, warm in the sun, cool in the shade. A great day for a hike to a milky green iridescent alpine lake. So that’s exactly what Andrea and I did.
I’m extremely thankful that I live in a place that is close to places like this. And that these places have passionate, committed [defenders](http://www.wawild.org). (Even as we speak they’re working hard to [protect nearby areas](http://www.wawild.org/wilderness/sky_country_proposal.htm).
UPDATE: here are a few more [photos](http://blogs.onenw.org/jon/gallery/view_album.php?set_albumName=blancalake).
