Today I'm blogging from Seattle! I'm here for the Seattle marathon.
We went on a hike at Wallace Falls just outside of Seattle this afternoon. It smelled like Christmas trees. There was moss growing on the trees. Everything was green. We heard the sound of the river rushing over the rocks as we hiked up the steep path and down the steep path, too, to get to the Middle Falls. After 2 - 2 1/2 miles, we were rewarded with a great view of the waterfall.
This was our third attempt at a hike today. First, we drove towards Twin Falls, but never found it. Then we stopped at Snoqualmie Falls, but it was nearly all roped off because it was the site of a crime scene. So I was relieved when we found Wallace Falls (Yay!) and saw no signs of emergency personnel (Double yay!).
