Now that it is fall, Jasmine and I are taking advantage of the season and going on hikes all over the greater Seattle area. This weekend, we took a trip northeast of here to the Tolt River Park in Carnation just off of the Snoqualmie River. It is fun to get out of the city and suburbs for a bit on the weekend and have an enjoyable day wandering around the trees and river.
The park was next to the town of Carnation which grew many of the titular flower so I had to include a picture of a flower farm.
The first part of the hike was the prettiest – a nice river crossing on a very wobbly bridge.
Behold my attempts at pretty photography.
There was access to the river so we got to spend time on the banks skipping stones.
And we also hiked up a mossy mountain trail which seemed like an appropriate name at time, though fern hill may have been more accurate.
