A New Trail – Tiger Mountain Trail

We finally got to do a little hiking. We drove out to Tiger Mountain Trail in Issaquah. It was beautiful. I took my cameras to take some shots of the area. The trail system where we were had three trails, the Iverson RR Trail, Preston RR Trail and the NW Timber Trail. Because of the amount of people and bicyclists going toward the Preston RR Trail and the NW Timber Trail we decided to take the Iverson RR Trail. There was no one on that trail just us and the dogs so it was quite nice. The trail is a primitive dirt path with tree roots and stones sticking out of the dirt along the uphill climb. We didn’t make it to the top this time because we had to get back in time for Mitch to get ready for work, but what we did see was so beautiful. Below are a few of the pictures I took. There is one I took looking up at the tree tops that I plan on blowing up and framing. But even with the tree top canopy and ferns everywhere, you could still see how dry everything is even on this side of the Cascades.

  1. Golly, it’s beautiful there! But, so dry! I remember the Cascades being a darker shade of green, even in mid-summer, during all my four years in Washington. SIGH… Ah, well, I’m trying to hope it’s part of the natural cycle of things, but, I’m not sure I can… It’s good you found a good place to go with the dogs…

    I don’t know about Washington, but, here in California, a great many cities and towns are putting in what are called “dog parks” where dogs are allowed to run off leash, to socialize and play with each other, and their humans…. They have them even in cities; I know of several parks in SF, and Santa Rosa, (and all over California, for that matter), where they’re allowed, and Sonoma county has several regional parks with areas reserved for dogs… It’s a good way to socialize them, and get them exercise off the leash, when stuck in a city environment…The better ones even have toys and doggy playgrounds, with places for them to climb and jump and run…

    Just thought i’d offer that to y’all, in case it isn’t known in the parts you came from… but, Washington is pretty progressive politically speaking, and should be fairly up on the latest animal rights movement activities…

    Any who, great pix…. I love the forest up there; it’s so lush when it has enough water…

    Hope the house/home search is progressing apace….

    • I just looked more closely at the pictures, and, they’re so good, I’d like to share them with my readers, if you don’t mind… I will show a couple of them, and a link to this post, so they can see them for themselves… Please say yes, it will save me a lot of work, and I’m really, really lazy…

      🙂

      Pretty please?….
