We really needed to get out and get some fresh air. We're had a temperature inversion here in the Seattle area. It has been foggy and nasty every day this week. We decided to head up to Rattlesnake Ledge which is just up towards Snoqualmie Pass.
It is about a 45 minute drive from our house. The trail is 4 miles roundtrip and elevation gain of just over 1100 feet. The trail is in great condition - smooth with few rocks or roots. It makes for an easy climb. Today it took us about 1 hour 10 minutes. I found an old post from 2004 when we were training - 45 minutes! Sigh...
At the ledge, you get over 180 degree view over the Snoqualmie Pass area, Middle fork of the Snoqualmie river, Mt. Si and the Ceder river watershed.
Here are a few more of the vistas today.
