Jennifer and I had a fantastic time backpacking along the East Bank Trail in the North Cascades National Park over the Forth of July! Ever since I laid My eyes on Hozomeen Mountain, I have wanted to see it up close. I wasn't disappointed. Even more grand than the sharp tooth of the peek is the lake nestled at the foot of the spire. Perfect swimming, deep crystal clear, water, zero crowds, and the cries of loons pierced the night's sky. Definitely a trip to remember and we definitly earned those cheeseburgers! Thanks Jennifer!
