The photo above is from a hike some friends and I took yesterday up to Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Serene, a national park area located about an hour northeast of Seattle. It was a strenuous hike with a 2,000 foot elevation gain over around 3.5 miles but it was well worth it. Lake Serene is at the top, and that white area is a glacier!
We’re hiking a bit more lately and exploring the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. It’s one of the best things about going to SU: you’re in the heart of the city, but only a short drive away from beautiful state/national parks and lots of opportunities to explore the great outdoors.
