A Hike Toward Serenity

For those who enjoy hiking, this is a must if you are in the western Washington area at some point. The few times I have been up here it has been gorgeous and clear, but I hope someday to do this hike on a foggy day and get some shots out over the lowlands covered in fog while the mountains rise above it. The trail has in my opinion some of the most beautiful scenery in Washington and is a wonderfully enjoyable 8-10 mile hike.
