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.
We followed the better weather up to Cama Beach Historical State Park and Camano Island State Park.
It took some wrong turns to get to the south entrance to Lord Hill Regional Park finally.
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.
On our way to the Mission Ridge area, I realized that this was the final ski weekend.
A place like Silo Mountain that involved a long walk was perfect for hiding from the mass.
For hikes as straightforward as Lyman Hill, pup and I tend to get ourselves into a pickle.
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.
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.
To avoid snowy weather conditions over the mountain passes, I looked for potential new destinations in the Puget Sound area.
With more snow in the forecast today, I stayed west of the Cascades and resorted to another one of our Puget Sound area off-season go-to places.
