A Weekend Hike In The Pacific Northwest

Pacific Northwest


A little over an hour drive north of Seattle lands you in some pretty nice scenery. Actually, anywhere in that area is spectacular. The countryside is simply beautiful, and full of surprises at ever turn. You’ll see our biggest surprise of the day in the last photo. It was during the drive home through the mountains.

After hiking upward on narrow, twisting and winding trails, we wound up miles deep in the thick woods. When we hit this clearing I wondered how someone got the materials there to build the bridge. Helicopter?

What a surprise it was to run into this on the way home.

    Been to all of the above, Marilynne. We used to live just north of Seattle. Nothing like seeing Mt. Rainier on the drive toward the airport or Tacoma. Breathtaking.

    I have a daughter in that area. It’s beautiful. If you go back try the Olympic Peninsula or go south to Mt. Rainier. All three are worth a visit.
