I visited a friend in Seattle in July 2017 - here are some of the highlights!
This hike was STUNNING. The switchbacks and super rocky terrain definitely made it challenging technically, but boy was it worth it. At the top of the mountain the final switchback took us around a row of trees and I was shellshocked to see the other side was covered in SNOW! I didn't have the right shoes to really trek down the snow covered hill to the lake's edge, but I was pretty happy with the views from where I was!
