Monday was our first true weekly hike, at Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park in Issaquah, about a 40-minute drive from home. We hiked over six miles in about three hours. It was a cool overcast day, perfect for hiking. Here are some scenes from the trail:
We observed salal in bloom. This Northwest native is used a lot in landscaping. It grows wild in the woods.
We ended the hike with a picnic near Coal Creek.
There will be more weekly hikes this summer, so watch this space for more of our adventures.
What? I hear you saying,"I thought this was supposed to be a knitting blog." Don't worry, it's coming...
