Today was a perfect day to climb Mt. Si. Quite the challenge, conquering Mt. Si makes me feel euphoric! Leslie, Winnie, and I enjoyed the sunshine and the unusually warm day today. The hike is 8 miles out and back and has a cumulative gain of 3,300 feet. We are steady hikers and it took us around 4 hours to complete the round trip hike.
Being such a fine day, we ran into many other hikers. Up at the top, we stopped for lunch and watched Winnie obsess over the many chipmunks scurrying about. We met a happy and friendly group of UW students having a great time, spending the afternoon in good company, enjoying nature! I hope they look up my blog site so they can see their photos up at the top of Mt. Si, almost to the top of Haystack Scramble.
Enjoy these photos from our fantastic day on the mountain!
