Vacation in Washington State

Lindsay and I just got back from a fantastic vacation. We spent 3 weeks backpacking, hiking, and climbing in Washington State. We went to Olympic National Park and North Cascades National Park. They must be 2 of the most beautiful places on earth. It was one of our best trips ever. Here are some pictures (click each image for a larger version).
