Last Saturday as I loaded my bike in the car for a day trip to the Stevens Pass Bike Park, I decided to run back inside and pack an overnight pack just in case I got inspired to spend the night outside. As the fog broke on our day of biking, I was duly inspired and decided to drive across Blewett Pass and spend the night at Ingalls Pass, a quick but potent backpacking option.
I camped on a rock ledge at Ingalls Pass, waking in the middle of the night to shoot some full moon shots. I woke again at 4:30 to make my way to the shores of Ingalls Lake where I shot long exposures in the pre dawn hours. The rest of the day was spent relaxing by the lake and in a leisurely hike back to the car. Only 24 hours of wilderness time, but immensely refreshing nonetheless. The conditions could not have been better for backpacking; and on that note, I’m off to pack my gear for another outing, this time in the North Cascades. Happy weekend!
