Seattle Hiking

The last stop of our summer Pacific Northwest trip was the Emerald City itself, Seattle. It was a relaxing way to end a long trip, staying with family and seeing a few sights, but mostly hanging out. Our big outing was to Rainier National Park where we hiked part of the 7 Lakes hike to Upper Palisades Lake. There were seven lakes so my identification of each lake may be a little off but I’ll do my best.

After the hike we drove through the park searching for more view, a bathroom and ice cream. Well worth it.DSC_0367
