Finally a sunny day! We needed to get outside like everyone else. There has been a tremendous amount of snow here in the Northwest. Here are some pictures on Stevens Pass from the WA department of transportation. I’m so amazed to hear of over 100 inches of snow on Snoqualmie and Stevens. I mean, those are totals normal for Mt. Rainier.
So we hit the trail today. We decided to do Cougar which actually is a part of a Bellevue suburb. It is a King County Park and you can feel like you are miles away. That is except for the rifle sounds from a near by gun park. But it was still nice to get out and enjoy the sun. We even got up close and personal with a pair of deer.
Here are the photos:
