Thanks, I know this is a very general question, but we are broke college students and want to make the most of our travels!


It looks like many others have already tried to convince you that it WOULD be worth coming. I have to throw in with them!

I've hiked in Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and California and can honestly say the Whites are as memorable as anything I've done.

Surely hit Washington - but make it part of a 2 or 3 peak trip. There are many ways to do this, even as a Day Hike.

You won't regret it!
