(Seattle, Washington, United States)  
Napeequa River Headwaters and the Butterfly Glacier, Glacier Peak Wilderness,
WA (Sept. 2017)
I grew up in Vermont, so the first time I ever saw snow in the summer time was on Vancouver Island, on the highway to Tofino, in August 2002. Ever since then I've been intrigued by anyplace that's high enough up to have a snow or glacier in the warmer months. I've been fortunate to explore a few beautiful spots in BC, and since moving to Seattle have been exploring the Cascades as well (but nothing yet compares to the scenery of Salal Creek/Athelney Pass).

Happy to have stumbled across Bivouac years ago, and slowly attempting to enter trip reports a year or so late to expand the knowledge base.
