Trip Report - 8/10-12/19 - Backpacking Tapto Lakes & Copper Ridge

Overall trip - 44 miles, 12,700 ft of gain, and 24 hrs of hiking (in 2.5 days).

Just finished a 3 day backpacking trip to Tapto Lakes, Whatcom Pass, and Copper Ridge. The clouds hung low during the entire trip, so views were sparse, but Marc and I pushed hard on the mileage and did some big days. Hopefully I can get back out here someday and see some of the peaks!
