On Saturday, I got to do my first hike in the Pacific Northwest! And to make the experience official, we made the journey in the area’s famous rainy weather.
We went to Twin Falls which is about 30 minutes from Seattle. The hike was modest– a three mile round trip and a 500 foot elevation gain. The scenery was just gorgeous. I could be a bit biased– my favorite color is green and the hike provided a lot of it. I was particularly taken with all the moss and ferns coating the trees. Add that to beautiful waterfalls, mist and great company– the journey was enchanting.
And GeekHiker– I think I saw one of those nurse trees you spoke of!
