Ellie and I hiked up Mount Si which is 8 miles round-trip and a 3150 foot elevation gain. I like to push myself, so in short, Ellie and I both worked our butts off! There was lots of snow the last mile of the hike which was even more of a challenge because it was sure slippery. Of course, Ellie made it look easy.
We ran the whole way down and Ellie crashed out in the car on the drive back. I made a well-deserved stop at Dairy Queen on the way back and Ellie got a doggy cone. :)
And today is Ellie's gotcha day, I got her two years ago! Happy 2 years to my doggylove :)

We went to Rattlesnake Ledge which is only 4 miles round trip, and it's pretty easy.
The sun was out in Seattle so I got a little excited, but on the 30-mile drive there, I drove through heavy rain showers, then sun, then grey skies, so I had no idea what to expect.
Unfortunately, when I got there, I noticed some snow on the ground. Uh oh! Despite the cold and getting hit with snowballs (as it melted off the trees) it was a good hike and we had a great time! We didn't linger long at the top because the view was obstructed by clouds, it was cold, and there was a good 3-4 inches of snow.

I'm looking forward to many more hikes this year!
