I have been exposed to possibly the greatest hobby/past time ever. Yes, for you slow folks, I am talking about hiking, as the page says in big bold letters. :) It is actually one of reasons I wanted to move to Washington. There is so much to see here, and the only way to see it is to get out there and walk right up to it.
See you on the mountain side....
2001 - Last year, we make a Gotta Go list to determine our scope for the year. It's a top 20 list of sorts, but it contained 23 hikes, and we completed 15 of them in a regular short PNW season. Not too bad for a couple of lazy goobers. Now, for your enjoyment, I am proud to present: Gotta Go List 2001. This one contains 17 hikes, since the last one had more than 20, we'll make up for it this year. Check it out, and check out the progress below! Look here for the list from 2000.
NOTE: After June 3, 2001, the pictures posted on these pages are not contained on this site. I ran out of space again, and I didn't want to buy more. So, I linked the images to another source. Please let me know if you have trouble with downloading images for hikes dated after 06/03/2001

I have not done much so far this year. I went snowshoeing twice on the same trail. I plan to go on hikes in the UK/Ireland in March.

Danger! Danger! I have found the steepest damn trail ever. Lake Mills, in the Olympics. You hike DOWN to the lake & Wolf Falls first, not up. WTF??
.4 miles, 400+ feet of elevation gain. Doesn't sound like much? Go check it out. This trailhead sign is misleading. I was not prepared to hike up & down a 45 degree angle on a road trip! But, despite how hard it was, I made it ok. It deserves special mention.
Go back to Seattle...
