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”

A Northwest Hike to Barclay Lake

Last week during the heatwave we decided to escape to Barclay Lake, a hike my husband had wanted to take every time we crossed the Cascades. We turned off Highway 2 at Baring onto a one lane road full of potholes, making for a… Continue Reading “A Northwest Hike to Barclay Lake”

Colorful Coulon Walk and a Cloud
