My favorite thing about Spring in the PNW ....
it means hiking season has begun!
Gabe hiked this trail with Willis (before Harley joined the family) and while I was out of town for work when we first moved here the winter of 06'. I was excited to check it out.
My girlfriends from Crossfit
Photo op before a 5.5 mile hike, rain, and snow!!
Lindsay, me, and Leslie
Off we go ...
I wasn't prepared for snow sighting
(***When Gabe hiked this trail, he was a naive Texan who was attempting the hike in tennis shoes while everyone else was wearing snowshoes -- HAHAHHA, priceless!!)
I SPY A LAKE peaking through the trees ...
My sister in law says this is an oxymoron photo: snowy tanktop!
TA-DAAAA, low and behold, Lake 22
The biggest group I have ever hiked with.
Leslie's church planned a day hiking event,
and I am so glad I joined them!
Once we made it to the top, it starting raining so all the layers I shed went back! Oddly, it happened so fast, so we headed down to the trail-head thinking warm thoughts like HOT chocolate, HOT soup, and most importantly a HOT car!!
This is why I love my city -- Until next time!
