Get Your Goat

The Mountain Loop Highway, originating in Granite Falls, is rich with amazing hikes. Growing up further north of Seattle, I had easy access to the plethora of adventures offered here. However, I hadn’t yet conquered Goat Lake. 

Do the Dome

I went to school up in Bellingham, where you are more surrounded by trees and mountains than you are in Seattle! There are many popular outdoor spots–Whatcom Falls, Teddy Bear Cove, the Arboretum–but my favorite of all is the Oyster Dome hike.
