I’ve been missing my favorite hiking places ever since we moved to Seattle from the bay area. I’d been hiking in the same spots since I was a little kid, and they were so safe and comforting for me, and provided a really great way to relax and get into a more creative frame of mind. The night I finished my rough draft of Somnolence, I called it done done around dawn and then went for a hike with my dogs as the sun came up. Moving was hard, and I still haven’t found a place around here where it’s so easy and comfortable for me to just go out and walk a trail. I still visit all those same places whenever I go down to see my family in California, but I really want to try to find places around here that fulfill that need.
To that end, yesterday I just googled some nearby trails, picked one kind of at random, and drove over there with the pups. It was absolutely gorgeous and so peaceful. Totally worth it.

How absolutely lovely! I really like the blue robin’s egg shell – that’s a treasure-find. While the weather is nice you might enjoy a longer outing to Snoqualmie Falls and for an overnight (or very long day-trip) adventure I’ve heard Lake Chelan is really nice. Chelan will be in the dry part of the state so it might be a more of what you like. Keep exploring! 🙂
