two weekends ago @ mt. si

March 21, 2005

oops this is really belated, but two weekends ago i went up to visit rose in seattle. while i was up there, we hiked up mt. si with jon, one of my childhood friends. here’s a picture from the top of mt. si:

Seattle.3.12.05 044

truly breathtaking, eh? (and scary too if you’re afraid of heights)

here’s the rock face at the top of the trail you have to scale to get up there :O

Seattle.3.12.05 034

anyways, if you’re the outdoorsy type and are in seattle, i highly recommend you check out mt. si. it’s a great day hike; it’s 8 miles round trip and it only took us 2.5 hours to get to the top of the trail. if you want to get to the summit, figure in another half hour for scrambling up the rock face. and of course, if you’re more of “enjoy nature from the comfort of your couch” person, you can check out the rest of my mt. si photos on flickr.

    Mark,

    Is there only a single trail when I get to Mt Sinai? If not, how do I identify the one you have visited? The pics show me that the place is breathtaking.

    Hi Ram – I think I just looked up Mt. Si somewhere and followed the directions. There’s only 1 main trail to the top.

    Here’s a trail review that includes directions and some tips http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/getaways/052799/hike27.html

    Good luck!
