Here’s a shoutout to summer wildflowers!

We recently took a hike near Mount Baker, up Ptarmigan Ridge, and the explosion of wildflowers was impressive.

While we don't know the names of many of those itty-bitty blossoms, that didn't take the edge off the sharp thrill of being in such an incredible place. We felt incredibly grateful to witness such beauty, especially during this stressful time. Yeah, being out in nature helps you forget about the pandemic for a minute or two.

Check out our Instagram for more colorful images from that day.
