So many bug bites, I couldn't count them all...
Seriously though, if you plan on visiting Mount Rainier National Park and forget your bug spray like I did, expect to feel the pain!
Recently I spent a weekend hiking around my favorite national park in the pacific northwest. It was a moonless night which meant that the Milky Way galaxy was out in full effect. After a long night of hiking around the eastern side of Mt Rainier National Park, 3am rolled around and the Milky Way had finally moved into position behind the mountain. You could faintly see climbers up on the slopes with the naked eye... when I looked into my camera I couldn't believe how bright their dim lights were. Like a trail of tiny glowing ants.
