Although hiking in the snow and rain can be its own unique experience, there’s nothing like PNW hiking in the summer! Now that spring is here and summer is right around the corner, I’m already creating hiking plans for when I’m back in WA for June. Because let’s face it… growing up in the Pacific Northwest has SPOILED me rotten when it comes to my hiking expectations. Sorry New England... we love you, but the PNW trails just hit differently!
