The Pacific Northwest

This past weekend I was able to do some camping at Deception Pass with the Boy Scouts. We had a great time and the weather was beautiful. All the great scenery reminded me that there is nothing quite like the Pacific Northwest.

Mount Si

A couple of weeks ago I went up with the Boy Scouts to hike Mt. Si. Right now I am currently a volunteer for the 11-year olds. Lucy and I had a blast; she loved the snow. Mt. Si is just outside of North Bend, WA (about 20 minutes to the east of Seattle). The mountain is a really popular local area for hikers (about 80,000 - 100,000 hikers annually). The trail was pretty steep and it was a perfect sunny day. It did seem like it was raining because the previous night a large snowstorm hit the area and it was melting overhead. Hope you enjoy the pics.
