What was a couple of days, turned into a few week due to editing delay, my best friend and I hiked one of Mountain Loop's more popular hikes: Mt. Pilchuck. I've done this one several times now and I must say it's beautiful, amazing and worth it every single time. It's about 5.5 miles round trip and you could easily underestimate how hard it can be based on the sort length. The most difficult part is for sure the very end when you're just climbing boulder after boulder. One thing that i found very comical was the "parking area" sign that probably was useful and helpful at one point is not very high up in the tress and very hard to see. Nonetheless this hike is so amazing and worth the effort! Just make sure it's not a cloudy day or the view will not be nearly as amazing. Seriously guys, get outside and explore our amazing state! And don't forget to follow the parking signs down to the bottom ;) Click on any of the images to see the whole gallery!
