    WA>Anywhere from Mt Rainier to Stevens Pass>6/24-26 - Any interest?

    Turns out that I've unexpectedly got a few days free from Sunday - Tuesday 6/24-26. I'm feeling the need to get out in the woods, but my usual cohorts can't make these days work. If anyone else is available and interested, I'm happy to pull together whatever I can and am willing to travel anywhere within a 3 hr radius of Seattle. I'm primarily thinking of car camping for the moment, but I can be flexible if, someone has a better plan in mind.

    And even if you can't make it, but have suggestions for a great spot that can be pulled off with so little lead time in western WA, please share your thoughts. I'm all ears.

    Hang loose... just not too loose.

    I am interested in your proposal and it might be doable on my part. I don't really have any ideas as to where to go though. I don't know the area well. But I am an experienced hiker. I am down for a hike, or just old man camping in our hammocks and poking sticks in the fire as well.

    Great to hear it, Mugs. I'm not really familiar with many of the local options either, which is part of my motivation. I'm game for some hiking as well, but I can't claim to be experienced or in the condition for a full-on trek. To that end, I'm thinking of something like the Denny Creek campground, which still has a few camp sites available and is within a short distance of a selection of hikes. An additional pro & con is that it's just off of I-90, so it should be easy to reach.

    I'm also fine with just old-man camping, tending the fire and hanging around trading stories, recipes, etc.

    Any thoughts?
