Hikes for self isolating

We spent 10 days self isolating at Poofys and plan to go back shortly. The solitude at Poofys means that we are safe and we are keeping our friends, family and community safe.  Check out  the Washington Trails Association website for some great information on hiking during this time when we need to stay home.

Here's some shots of our weekend hike of Dirty Face.  

Overlooking Lake Wenatchee.

A forest fire came through parts of Dirty face in 2005. Great to see how the forest comes back to life.

Great spots to just be alone and listen to the trees.

The Glacier Lily is one of the first wildflowers of the season.

There was snow on quite few parts of the trail, this is past mid-way and I was now getting more snow than I wanted in my Blundstones.

Looking forward to packing a proper lunch, starting earlier in the day and doing the whole 8 miles round trip later in the spring!

winter getaways

Perfect afternoons...

It was a crisp, windy day at Lake Wenatchee.

...decided on a walk up one of cross country ski trails off the Chiwawa Loop rd, near Fish lake.

Found a nice warm spot in the sun to stop and do nothing....

...followed by a late lunch.
