On this day, we went up to Chuckanut Mountain North Peak and Raptor Ridge north of Chuckanut Mountain.
This weekend, we followed the 50% chance of rainfall back to Puget Sound and up Chuckanut Mountain.
We braved the bad weather and went up to Galbraith Mountain. We needed a scenery change.
Puget Sound had a lower chance of rainfall. So we made Mount Pickett our rainy day destination.
We followed the better weather up to Cama Beach Historical State Park and Camano Island State Park.
The overnight snowstorms caused many spin-outs over Snoqualmie Pass. So we stayed put on this side.
Today we visited Camano Island for the first time after having driven past the exit countless times.
We brought our young recruit out on his first hike. This trip could have been our shortest in 2019.
We wrapped up the Thanksgiving streak with our fourth and final trip on San Juan Island.
Some refer to Devils Mountain as a "dumpster dive" destination or the backup of a backup plan.
Weather on this side of the mountains got progressively better by mid morning, and then sunny the rest of the day.
While researching beginner hikes, I came upon this low-profile, moderate high point on the Kitsap Peninsula.
Surprisingly quiet for a heavy foot traffic Saturday afternoon. By "heavy" I meant more than a handful of people.
Another rain-dodging trip to the Puget Sound area. It'd been eight years since I last set foot on Orcas Island to climb Mount Constitution as part of a weekend getaway.
Inspired by ejain's report from yesterday, pup and I once again set off to the Puget Sound area in an effort to dodge the rain.
We sought out Guemes Mountain in the rain shadow, in the hope of avoiding bad weather.
