I went on two wonderful hikes over the last two weekends: Mt. Ellinor with [ profile] moodyduck and [ profile] thewronghands, and the Foss Lakes Trail solo. I really should write up hiking logs --I've been increasing slacktastic about doing this. I don't know if I've actually written any this year, although I've been out numerous times. Ah, well. Here are a few pics. If I get my act together, I'll actually write them up wit h more photos later.

Possibly the biggest tree in the Cascades, on the Foss Lakes Trail!

Big tree from a distance.

Pretty trail pic.

Epic waterfall coming down from Copper Lake, en route to Trout Lake.

Little Heart Lake.


Yeah, I'm tired. That's all you're getting out of me right now. :D

The goats are always adorable. The little ones, anyway.

that is some stunning scenery! my favorite is probably the waterfall. although the goats are super cute. how close were you to them?

We were pretty close, until Moodyduck successfully drove them away. It's a bad idea to get too close--goats can get aggressive around here. For these, I was directly underneath them on the trail, so about 20 feet max. I used my telephoto to get right up in their faces.

Haha, I was hoping that you would get a better photo of Seattle from Mt. Ellinor than I did! I'm so glad that you did. [grin] Documentation!

Also, what kind of a tree is that "biggest tree"? So glad that the weather was such that you could do Foss Lakes -- that looks really pretty!

I tried to Photoshop the Seattle picture for more clarity, but it really looks best as is. City in the distance!

Pretty sure the tree is a Douglas Fir, but the needles were far enough and the bark old and gnarled enough at the bottom that I could be mistaken.
