Wanting to get out of the house the the wife and I decided to head up to Park Butte for a nice view in this unseasonably warm weather we are having. Just to extend the trip we settled on camping at the trail head in the few spots (4 with horse camps) are available.
The camp ground turned out to be much nicer than I had anticipated, plus due to the out of the way nature of this hike there was no one else camping at the trail head that night. It made for a great night of laughter, fire, fun and no need to keep quiet for other campers.
The hike was great this time around thanks to some fast snow melt, making the trail obvious as opposed to my last adventure here. A special thanks to those from the Skagit County Alpine Club for the hard work they were doing to maintain the lookout tower. An excellent little outing to start off the summer right, now that college is out of the way and we can finally relax.
