four years ago today [2012.09.20]
i spent the day at a campground not too far from north cascades national park where i was exploring the day before. i did some laundry there and probably worked on the computer most of the day.. around this time of the trip i unexpectedly had to do a lot of work for a client who decided they wanted much more than they had originally specified for the web application i had built for them. it was quite frustrating to have this affect my trip and make me feel rushed while exploring places, though it was really nice to be able to work from almost anywhere i wanted. i spent a couple nights at this campground.. it certainly was much easier to get work done without having to go looking for somewhere to park that had a usable phone or internet connection. there were plenty of beautiful, quiet places i could've stayed for a while, though many, if not most, were without a signal. at the campground, i stayed at a nice spot in the shade under tall, thick trees. in the afternoon, i went for a walk and explored the creek that ran through the back.. i think this was the campground where i saw a yurt in person for the first time (i'd been told about them years earlier when i became interested in alternative homes or living options).
