I posted the Banff question but due to car problems, I'm trying to find something closer to Seattle. Are there any areas to backpack where it is relatively sunny-warm in Washignton (it's raining here)?
A week in Washington without rain. Good luck this time of year. The weather is very unpredicable this time of year. Your best chances of sun will be on the East side of the Cascades either in the Okanogan or Wenatchee National forests. One of my favorite places is the Lake Chelan-Sawtooth wilderness. Been a couple of years since I have been there, but it is gorgeous. Chances of rain are a lot less than anything on the west side of the Cascades but you will still have a good chance of at least a day or two of rain. Good Luck. Let us know what you choose.
