Labor Day was forecast to be excellent weather, so Justin and I decided to take advantage of it and go for a hike. We picked Little Si, a 4.7 mile hike not too far from downtown Seattle.
|The trail wasn't difficult. Most of it passed through lush green forest. |
The epitome of the Cascades.
|We got to the summit more quickly than I had expected. The views over the valley were lovely.|
We sat on rocky outcropping for quite a while and ate our lunches and talked.
|Back down the mountain with more gorgeous greenness.|
After the hike Justin took me to a place he knew that promised to give us our fill of "grease, salt and caffeine".
|Bacon burger with fries and a coke -- promise delivered.|
Having had our fill of grease, salt and caffeine, we drove over to Snoqualmie Falls. It's a local falls made famous in the opening credits of the TV series Twin Peaks. Also, it was one of the first places people built hydro-electric plant about a century ago.
