Revisiting the Lower South Fork Skokomish

Revisiting the Lower South Fork Skokomish

This Memorial Day weekend, We had some very specific criteria that we were looking for in a hike. We wanted it to be about 10 miles long, a river trail without crazy elevation gain, not outrageously far away, but also not outrageously busy. I wanted some views but they could be modest. We mostly wanted to get outside for a good amount of time and enjoy the awesome weather without wearing ourselves out for the rest of the weekend. The Lower South Fork Skokomish fit these criteria perfectly.

Snowshoeing in Paradise on New Year’s Eve

Snowshoeing in Paradise on New Year’s Eve

This New Year’s Eve, we spent the day in Paradise, literally. We threw our (REI rental) snowshoes in the car and headed to Mt. Rainier for the day. We got kind of a late start, because we worked out with our trainer that morning and then of course we were scrambling around trying to find our snow clothes… Where do gloves go during the summer? How do they do it? I would blame the cat, but I don’t have enough evidence to pin it on her, so I just suspect the gloves walk away on their own. Also, this is why I always put on my calendar two nights before an event “get stuff ready for [event].” I have yet to actually get up and do that thing at that time. But I digress. So naturally, we were on the road by 10am.
