Guest Blog Post + Mint Chocolate Energy Bites
Happy summer solstice-the longest day of the year! Seattle couldn't get any better than this. The weather is sunny and warm, and I get to hang out with my favorite adventure buddy. We enjoyed a wonderful hike to Bandera Mountain, an eight mile hike with 3400 ft of elevation gain. The view was wonderful and Mt. Rainier was in its full glory. We enjoyed a quick snack, and then ran all the way down, bounding from one rock to the next like weathered mountain goats. Luckily we started early and beat the main weekend warrior crowd that emerged on the trail right as we finished. After that, the day was already a success. With the windows rolled down, sunglasses on, and music in the air, we were high on life. Nothing beats a good fast hike in the Alpine Wilderness.
