One of J’s favorite hikes nearby is Mount Si. It’s only about 45 minutes away, in the Snoqualmie region. It’s 4 miles to the top and has a steady elevation gain of 3150 feet. We hiked this one last fall, on one of the clearest days I’ve seen since moving here.
It was a tough hike that just seems to keep going up and up and up, but we were rewarded with this incredible view of Mt. Rainier when we reached the top.
It was so clear you could even see downtown Seattle in the distance!
