Day Hike

Sun!?! Quick, everyone outside!

The last few days have been very sunny here in Seattle. So sunny, it's enough to make you think that winter is over. However, as others have noted, this seems to happen every year in February and we'll be complaining about the cold and rain again soon enough. But, as procedure dictates when the sun shines in Seattle, you drop whatever indoor activities you have planned (for us, wedding planning) and head outdoors. So, on Saturday, we headed out for a day hike with Tonja's cousin Luke and his wife Anna who live up in Bellingham.

The hike was a trail along Boulder river and was about an hour and half drive from Seattle. The trail was a little wet and muddy in spots, and there were a few trees down, but all in all it was a nice 8 mile hike on a very nice warm spri...winter day. A few photos:

mmm...moss and ferns.

One of three waterfalls along the trail.

The trail...in all it's glory.

A good place to get lost. If one is into that kind of thing.

Apparently, Tonja and I are coordinating our hiking apparel these days.

And that was our hike. I tried to get a group photo, but it turned out very washed out from the sun. I guess I'm not used to factoring in the sun with photos any more. But, it was a good hike and great fun hanging out with Luke and Anna. The overcast conditions have returned today and the rain is not far behind. But, it was fun while it lasted.
