Hiking the Historic Lime Kiln Trail

Hiking the Historic Lime Kiln Trail

It’s been a crazy long time since we’ve been hiking. Our last hike was in February! And it was a snowshoe!! Ever since we began the house-hunting adventure, there’s been almost no time to get outside. Luckily, we’ve achieved our goal and bought a house! That means we’re done for the year now, right? We can just coast, right? Maybe. Either way, now that we’re finally feeling settled into the house, we took a day to ourselves and went on a nice local hike. The weather in Seattle has been freaking gorgeous for the past couple of weeks. So of course, on the one day we can go hiking, it’s forecasted to rain. That’s okay! Rainy days are what river hikes are for.

Going Back in Time at Ebey’s Landing

Going Back in Time at Ebey’s Landing

Recently, we decided to try something different than our normal mountain-and-river fare. I set my sights on Whidbey Island for its sweeping views of the Puget Sound, Olympic Peninsula, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Baker. How awesome does that sound?! The Saturday weather promised to be phenomenal too – 50 degrees and sunny – the most beautiful day of the year so far. It would be a crime to not go on an adventure (I think it’s actually illegal to not enjoy sunny days in Washington before summer begins).
