Snowshoeing in Snoqualmie Pass

Had the pleasure of snowshoeing with my daughter for a couple of hours around a lake at Snoqualmie Pass, about 90 minutes East of Seattle.  It was her first real snowshoe and we had a great time!!  Here’s a few of my best shots from the day.

Lots of other folks out enjoying the day on the trail, too 🙂


Around “The Hood”

Just out for a nice 1 hour + power walk early this afternoon.  There are several nice areas to walk in where I live in Port Moody, BC, and neighborhoods that avoid the traffic and noise on the major arteries so I like to get into those areas quite quickly.

This walk was no exception.  One of the things I’ve seen cropping up in various neighborhoods are little book exchange boxes and this walk brings me right by this one.  Very nicely done, don’t you think?

After walking around a bit more, I finished off with a bit of a loop around Como Lake and then headed back down the hill to home.  It was a bit misty and quiet and the lake provided a couple of nice scenes.


Some mallards that call the lake home.

And this lovely tree that sits out in the lake on a small “island”.

About an hour after I got home, the sun came out and the misty atmosphere vanished.  Lucky to capture it while I could.
