Wonderful Family Hike

On the spur-of-the-moment we decided to go for a hike Sunday. It was a gorgeous, hot summer day spring day. We were going to be in the North Bend (Snoqualmie Falls) area, which isn't too far from where my brother and his family lives. So we asked them to join us.

This is my nephew, isn't he cute? Here we go, up through the woods.
We made it.
 This is where we should have stopped. But the trail kept going so we kept going. We hiked two more miles up and I mean up. We finally ask what we were hiking to ....
an other entrance, basically a parking lot. No rainbow,  no fairies,  no pot of gold, no gorgeous view just a parking lot. *sign* So we headed back down.

When we made it all the way down a little rest was in order.


All in all it was a good hike.

  9. Those faces tell a story of a fun time together! I love to just photograph nature as I go, but I'm always afraid others don't share my passion for green! Good post.

  13. That is the most stunning place, even it there was nothing at the top with scenery like that it is worth every minute of the hike. Looks like all the party throught so too. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
