The morning started out very cloudy and gray, but it was supposed to clear up around noon. We decided to trust the weather guy and headed up towards Bellingham with the dogs. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive to the trailhead and as soon as we turned off the highway in Bellingham the sun came out and the day turned gorgeous.
Hiking past a lake ... there were people camping on the far side of the lake. It looked like a really cool campsite!
And once we turned up the final path, it was all uphill ... and not a little uphill, but MAJOR uphill. The last part was very hard. But I made it and the view from the top was worth it!
And then we headed back down ...
Lucy ... I was behind her, Ads and J. for the whole hike so she would stop and wait for me every now and then. As soon as she saw me, she would race off to meet back up with J. and Addy. She did this every 5-10 minutes, it was adorable.
We finally made it to the end of the hike and headed home. It was a great hike ... a challenging but doable trail and a gorgeous view coupled with a gorgeous day. I definitely recommend this hike to anyone in the Seattle area ... as long as you're not sick!
