    I can't agree more; laugh and smiling are leading causes of good vibrations, and ultimately, of happiness.
    Almost always ready for the next, refreshing outing of the same caliber!

    The day had good laughs, excellent company, snow, rain, clouds, sun and great food.

    Although a relatively short hike, but with an exciting mix of what mother nature can offer in this season and in this region, fog and haze, rain and a little snow, wind, and even a little sun shine. Great crowd and one of my favorite organizers; overall, awesome!

    Had a long day today; need to recover after it. Maybe somebody from waiting list could get the spot. Have a wonderful hike.

  • Cyrus B.

    I'm in, and I'll be there.
    However, Since I'm coming from the Eastside , Seattle, I'll meet all of you at the trail head.

    I'll be leaving from Tacoma. Any one want to meet at the 512 Park and ride (or further north)? I can drive or ride...just no desire to go to Olympia first!

    October 21, 2013

    • Song C.

      Great, We'll meet at the 512 P&R then. Do you have the pass?

    this looks like a great hike, should I go out and purchase some micro spikes to be on the wait list today?

    October 26, 2013

  • Cyrus B.

    I'm coming from the Eastside of Seattle or Bothell (my choice). I"m on the wait list now; if I'm confirmed by Friday evening, I could, and would team up with a couple of people from/or in my direction and ride, or carpool.
    Any takers?

  • Cyrus B.

    Bingo! One step closer now; Thx. Seeker!

    October 23, 2013

  • Mac

    Hey Uncle Cyrus, you're on the wait list now.

    October 23, 2013

  • Mac

    We'll leave the Park & Ride at 7:00am sharp. Please arrive a few minutes before 7. There is a wait list now.

    October 23, 2013

  • Regina

    Can't wait Mac! This has been on my "to do list" for awhile now. Yippy!

    October 22, 2013

  • Cyrus B.

    Too bad; can't RSVP (filled up already), and no wait list either? I'll be watching, however, if someone jumps off the list! If I get in by Friday late evening, I could carpool with whoever leaves from Seattle area, as I live on the eastside of Seattle.

    October 22, 2013

  • Lena

    Can I join waiting list please?

    October 21, 2013

  • Song C.

    That was close! Got the last spot...xD Looking forward to this meet up.
