That's So Seattle The Well Nourished Soul

we were moving mountains long before we thought we could

this past weekend my hiking group, black people hike (bph) hit the tiger mountain west trail for what we thought would be a 5 mile hike round trip. turns out the high point trail (which doesn’t go all the way to the top) is 5 miles. the west trail is actually 4.4 miles one way. so, yeah. it was a long hike. but the day was beautiful, and the company was amazing, and we had a great time. i wanted to do a top 5 for this hike and share a few pix from my perfect day climbing tiger mountain.
