Rainy days are frequent here, so its always good to have a good riverside or waterfall hike prepared for offering a bit of tree cover and protection from the elements. Located in Granite Falls is Lime Kiln trail, a relatively flat trail rich in history that is great year-round for hiking.
Last weekend was the gorgeous spring day that tricks you into believing summer is around the corner. I see many trails were abuzz with hikers. I decided to stick close to home and explore a beautiful lakeside park in Seattle–Seward Park.
If April showers bring May flowers, March sunshine brings slushy snow and iffy conditions in the mountains. Luckily, there remain tons of nearby parks that have trails year-round, including this beautiful state park northeast of Seattle.
Despite living in the greater Seattle area nearly my whole life, I have never been to Vashon Island. That changed this weekend when I hopped on the ferry from West Seattle to hit some snow-free trails!
Black Friday is the holiday for hikers to #optoutside and hit the trails instead of the mall. I had a few low-elevation hikes bookmarked, but Cherry Creek Falls was calling my name in particular.
Long time, no post! I’ve been a little busy with a birthday trip and illnesses so hiking has fallen a bit by the wayside. I had a few people tell me in person they missed reading though, so last weekend with gorgeous weather I decided it was time for some new content and to spend […]
For our anniversary, the boyfriendo surprised me with a weekend in Winthrop! Located northeast of Seattle, near North Cascades National Park, this town is a playground in both the winter and summer for outdoor activities–but how would the shoulder season hold up?
Like any good state or national park, Crater Lake National Park has a myriad of hiking options, from the easy to the challenging. During the course of our three-night stay, we did almost every hike that was open (sadly, much of the park was off-limits due to fires). Here were the easy hikes, perfect for […]
As easy as Goat Lake was, the 1300 feet elevation made my still-bum hip flare up–a major disappointment as I had been wanting to do some tough hikes to prepare for an upcoming camping/hiking trek. I was worried it’d be a lost cause–where can one find an easy-yet-still-pretty hike within two hours from Seattle?
Ahh, waking up the morning that Daylight Savings kicks in. The panic when you look at the time and realize you have one hour till checkout and need to shower and pack before departing for the trailhead. Maybe we didn’t pick the best weekend for hiking after all?
