It’s been a few weeks since I’ve taken a hike (unless you count the urban hikes in Discovery Park). I wanted to post the hike I did back on the most beautiful sunny Seattle day in March. So my hiking friend Lacey and I hiked and hiked straight up this mountain asking every passer by about the view. They all joked like what view? We honestly thought they were joking and that the view would be amazing like all hikes that are that steep. Sadly, when we got to the top it was a picnic table in the middle of the woods – thus my simple type on wood grain photo. I guess that day we learned that A) not all hikes were designed for a pretty view at the top and B) we would do better trail research next time. Overall though, we had good time. We hiked back down the mountain feeling content that we had gotten out into nature on such a beautiful day. -Holly
