A Wow Hike on the Flanks of Mt. Rainier

Of all the hikes I’ve done on Mt. Rainier – and there have been many I’m a local after all – this was the best – the Golden Gate and Skyline Trails on the flanks of the mountain! It was a perfect day for… Continue Reading “A Wow Hike on the Flanks of Mt. Rainier”

I’m Singing and Hiking in the Rain!

The snow has come and gone, replaced by wind and rain. But yesterday there was a break in the weather and we headed to Lake Wilderness starting out at the Arboretum where bulbs were blooming and trees were budding. We took a path through… Continue Reading “Winter Walk into Spring at Lake Wilderness”

Up in a Redwood Tree

Earlier this month on a very rainy day we went to Lincoln Park for a walk. We took the trail up to the top of the bluff and found shelter in a grove of Redwood trees. So did this little fella. Shared with Becky’s… Continue Reading “Up in a Redwood Tree”
