Pete and I a-hikin’ went
Posted by joeabbott on June 13, 2012
I posted the “before” notes on it here but have a few pictures to share. It was a fairly predictable day:
- Head out to Exit 27 off I-90
- Go south to the end of the road … you’ll be at a Snoqualmie Point Park
- Lock the car and start walking!
Our only agenda was to hike as far as we could until we needed to turn around and then head back. Our motivation for turning around was Pete’s 4:00PM hair cut appointment; he generously said we could hike until 3:00PM. So, off we went, getting to Stan’s Overlook and then another couple miles before we said “time to head back”. In all, we went just over 5 miles out and about 2300’ of elevation gain before hitting our turn-around time.
After that, we headed back; unhurried but making good time. I dropped him off at his car just before 3PM and he was off.
While my feet hurt quite a bit that night, all was mostly back to normal the next day and I had very little soreness. I need a bit of conditioning to get back into shape but it was a fine trip.
Next weekend we have lots of non-hiking plans so we’ll just head out for an early run up Tiger Mountain!
