Hello and welcome to a new week! I’m sharing some photos from my most recent hiking trip exploring the east mountains of Washington. It took about 3 hours to get to the trailhead, called Stuart and Lake Colchuck trailhead, and nearly 6 hours to hike to the lake. It was intense and exhausting but well-worth it. We for sure did not anticipate this long of a hike and wish we packed more food and water for sure. It was really closed to Leavenworth, the cute German town, so we stopped by for some brats and beers.
You can read about the trail conditions and other people’s reviews, pretty up to date, here. I hiked this one two weekends ago and got really lucky because it was one of the most gorgeous days in awhile. It was super sunny, hence the gorgeous blue green lake color.
