Hike Of The Week: Harry’s Ridge (Mt St Helens)

It’s a little bit of a haul down to Mt St Helens but well worth the trip whether you do this hike or not. There are several trails to get some incredible glimpses of the volcano that erupted in 1980. The visitor center has plenty of souveniers, artifacts, and demonstrations that are both REALLY cool and very informative. It’s fun …

Hike Of The Week: Rachel Lake/Rampart Lakes

Rachel Lake, just over Snoqualmie Pass is about an eight mile roundtrip hike which is pretty moderate for the first two miles and then...gets A LOT steeper on the final final. The reward is a beautiful alpine lake surrounded my beautiful trees and peaks. If you feel up to it...venture up another 2 miles or so and check out Rampart Lakes.

Hike Of The Week: Granite Mountain

One of the many spectacular hikes along the I-90 corridor on the way to Snoqualmie Pass, THIS particular hike is however…not the easiest!

If you’re looking for a fun weekend getaway…check out THIS place! It’s located up in Neah Bay and is the “Northwesternmost point in the lower 48”.
