Weekly Hike #15: A Hike with Friends

It was a week of hiking, first, the three hikes at Mount Rainier, then on Saturday, August 31, a hike with our friends Sarah and Dave, and Dave's son, Justin. We decided to do the approximately seven-mile round trip hike to the beautiful Olallie Lake. (You may remember that I blogged about this hike in 2011.)

It was a gorgeous day for a hike, as you can see.

The sunlight cast beautiful shadows along the trail.

At one point, the trail was made of wood. These walkways are called puncheons.

Sarah is one of my knitting friends, and not only did we talk knitting the whole way up to the lake, but look what we did once we got there...

We didn't just knit, we also enjoyed the view of the lake and posed for a photo.

All in all, it was one of the most fun hikes we have done this year. We scheduled another hike (Mount Si) for late September, but got rained out. Mount Si has been rescheduled, so watch for a post toward the end of October about that hike.
