Sunday hike: Mount Walker

Mount Walker is the easternmost peak in the Olympics, with an elevation of close to 3,000 ft and a well-maintained trail. On a clear day, the north viewpoint allows a view of Puget Sound and Seattle. We were hoping the sun would finally burn off the heavy cloud cover, but the higher we hiked the thicker the mist, and the bigger the raindrops. Since we were an expanded party we took a vote after lunching (aka No Cessation Without Representation)–and decided to call it a day about halfway to the top.

The mist was quite beautiful, pearlizing every spiderweb and moss basket.
