Summertime is the place to be in Seattle. It is absolutely stunning. And, what makes the long drizzly winters bearable. And although it is the time of year for vacationing, we've committed ourselves to sticking around the Pacific Northwest during the summer months and traveling during the rest of the year. We've been spending most weekends hiking, biking and day tripping to anywhere and everywhere.
This weekend, we explored the well-known (and well-worn) Lake 22 trail. It’s 5.4 miles round-trip and an elevation gain of 1350 ft and most importantly, dog friendly! We completed the hike in about 5 hours. The best part being the pack lunch (complete with a few Fremont Brewing IPAs) that we treated ourselves to at the top! Although the hike is moderate, this trail sees nearly every hiking Seattleite during the summer months. If you’re looking for a serene “one-with-nature” kind of experience, this is probably not the trail for you. We enjoyed in none-the-less.
What are you up to this weekend?
