Blowdowns on Boulder River Trail

Blowdowns on Boulder River Trail

Well, it was bound to happen. Sooner or later, after hiking all over Washington state, there had to be a hike that we just absolutely, positively, did not enjoy. And that hike was the Boulder River trail. Maybe it was just the mood we were in? Maybe it was the weather? No, that couldn’t be it. We were in perfect hiking mood and the weather was perfect hiking weather. This just simply wasn’t the hike for us.

Wallace Lake: An Unexpected Winter Wonderland

Wallace Lake: An Unexpected Winter Wonderland

Last Sunday, our friends wanted to go on our first big hike of the year, so we all chose Wallace Falls State Park. As we mentioned in this post, it’s one of our favorite nearby spots. The park really has it all. The waterfalls are magnificent, but this time we wanted something different. We decided to trek to the north end of the park, to Wallace Lake.

Today we decided to try something new after reading a little bit about it during some random internet surfing, and that something is geocaching. Now I’m going to be honest, when I first read about it even I thought it was pretty nerdy. Quoting the official website: “Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.”
