I went on two wonderful hikes over the last two weekends: Mt. Ellinor with [livejournal.com profile] moodyduck and [livejournal.com 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.

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

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.
