In case you haven’t noticed, Rattlesnake Ledge is one of our favorite go-to hikes in the winter. The up side is that we are usually more out of shape in the winter and this one is easier and it is usually snow-free all or most of the way. The down side is that the views are amazing but you hardly ever get to see them in the winter because the weather sucks.
The last two times we have hiked the trail we got to the top only to see….nothing but a wall of clouds. By my recent photos you might think I have been lying about the views. I wanted to give you a little something to prove that I am not.
Last summer, before we got Gretel, we hiked to the top with Chester. It was a nice warm, clear sunny Washington day. When we got to the top, there it was – the amazing view we had been hoping for.
When we sat in the ledge for a while – eating our lunch and enjoying the beer we hiked up with us.
Yay for the beer ring (which was the first present I gave S….before we even started dating officially)
