Took a little day trip down to Washington to climb Hurricane Ridge. The plan was to head down on Saturday morning, do the climb, camp out, and then sneak in another ride somewhere on Sunday before heading back.
The departure for the trip down was made at a (relatively) reasonable hour and was uneventful. Instead of paying the exorbitant BC Ferries rate, we drove through Anacortes and took the much better priced Coupeville-Port Townsend ferry. Even with the drive time and fuel cost, we still came out ahead compared to passing through the Island. Alex and I enjoyed pretty much perfect weather for the entire day: sunny, but a cool 20°C with a slight breeze and were able to enjoy a very recently repaved road up to the summit.
Camping plans didn't quite pan out, so huge thanks to Julie for enduring a long late night drive back to Vancouver.
5/7. Would do again.
