Veteran's Day 2016

Veteran's Day 2016.  We've had some wonderful fall days, lots of rain but also plenty of sunny days.  The nicest this weekend was Friday, so we went for a hike up to Little Bandera Mountain, about 7 miles and 2800 feet elevation gain.  On the way, there is a nice waterfall.

Lovely trail.  This is the converted rail-trail, but later it becomes much steeper trail.

From the ridgeline, great views, including Mount Rainier in the distance.  It doesn't come out well in the photos, but it was out despite a bit of haze.

Also from the ridgeline, you can see down the Snoqualmie River valley into the population-filled plain as well as Mason lake on the other side of the ridge, one of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
