Rattlesnake Hike - with Pictures

We had to do this beautiful hike again since it was a clear day with almost no clouds. I'm sure we'll come back in September and October because the mountain is full of big leaf maples and vine maples which turn glorious colors in the fall.

This is a view from about a half mile up. The lake is part of the water supply for Seattle.



This is a view from the top of Rattlesnake Mountain, about 2 miles up, and my good hiking buddy, Sharon. I got a blister on my heel and bless her heart she had a big bandage just the right size! Then later my water bottle leaked in my backpack and drowned my cell phone. I was planning to buy a new one anyway. Luckily, I had my camera out so it didn't get wet.

Wow, you live in such a beautiful area. If I lived in a place that looked like that, I'd be outside all of the time, too!

Congrats on your recent weight loss!
