Northern Loop, Mount Rainier National Park

Originally planning on trying the Northern Loop direct route, competing cloud layers (one in the valleys, another around 6500-7000') put me off the seven miles of cross country and I decided to just stay on the Northern Loop trail. It worked out well, meeting Joe along the way, and spending the last ~17m together. Getting some value out of that America the Beautiful pass!
