Snowshoeing around Snoqualmie Pass

Winter is here and so is the snow, well not in Seattle but beautiful mountains are only a quick drive away.

 

Snoqualmie Pass has a couple recreation areas that are easily accessible without serious snow gear.  Two of these are Gold Creek Pond and Katchess lake on the north side of 90.  While Katchess Lake required a bit more hardware to get to, Gold Creek Pond was easy to explore in just spikes.  If you wanted to go off trail, GCP and snowshoes are the way to go.  I miss the snow immensely but having it so close and with mountains too make up for it.

San Juan Islands

It was our friend Tiffanys birthday so we booked an Air BnB on San Juan Island and boarded a ferry to head over.  Friday Harbor has a nice downtown area and there are a couple hikes and parks to check out.  There are also a lot of alpacas…  We saw some sea otters but no whales or other sea creatures which was slightly disappointing.  Kind of a big gallery but its still narrowed down from 350 photos so, its the best I could do!

A Whole Mess of Photos I Haven’t Published

I go on a lot of walks and bike rides around Seattle and almost always take my camera with me.  Fall is really something else here with all the hills and being able to see so many colors.  University of Washington is so vibrant.  Its hard to share everything when you come home with a couple hundred shots and you like 20% of them.  Some of these are repeats from my Instagram but a lot are new.

One Foggy Night

With all the “rain” Seattle supposedly gets, you’d think there would be more foggy days, especially when you live close to the sound.  When it does come around, it presents and eerie feeling when its dark out.  These were taken at the Ballard Locks 2 weeks ago.
