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.
Old tree with roots by the lake.
