I don't know about the rest of you, but I find myself simply giddy when we have weather like we've had the last couple of days. Lucky for us, the weekend is shaping up to not disappoint. With that being said, this weekend seems like a great opportunity to ditch the flip-flops I've been so optimistically wearing, don some better hiking attire and hit up a trail or mountain.
Weather.com is calling for temperatures in the high 50s both Saturday and Sunday. If you're looking for some trails that haven't been beaten down by winter's harsh conditions, check out www.wta.org. Right now the website is highlighting 11 year-round, state parks hikes which you may not have known about.
Also, according to the Seattle Times, The Issaquah Alps Trails Club is offering a 4-mile hike at Lake Tradition tomorrow, Feb. 20. There is also information about snowshoe walks at both Stevens Pass and Snoqualmie Pass. Both run all weekend. For Snoqualmie Pass, visit this website, www.fs.fed.us/r6/mbs/news/. And if you'd prefer to head north into the Cascades, check out the Stevens Pass walk at www.stevenspass.com.
Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend and, as always, if you take any pictures you'd like to share with us, feel free to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
