I can’t believe it’s the last day of August! What happened to the summer? 

There were so many trips I was looking forward to this summer, and now they’re pretty much done. 

I mean, yes, we’ll be going out to another trip over Labor Day weekend. And we might even make it up to Big Creek for some camping later in September. If the roads stay clear long enough. There’s always a chance that Profile Gap will get snowed up early. 

But, essentially, the season is over. 

I might have to move somewhere where I can have a longer backpacking season… 

Or it might be time to start living in a van and driving to where the hikes are. 

I don’t think that’s really something I want to do. The idea is tempting, but I just don’t know how I’d be able to make enough money to sustain an itinerant lifestyle. 

Maybe someday. 

I’m excited for next season’s trips. But I wish the season didn’t have to end.
