Ira Spring Trail
This weekend I had my first visitor (Kimbra!) and went on my first adventure outside of Seattle. We went about 90 minutes east of Seattle to Snoqualmie Pass and hiked the Ira Spring Trail. It was about 3.5 miles up, and we were rewarded with a chilly swim at the top in Mason Lake. The trail was easy enough to run down at parts and had great views of Mount Rainier. It was a great day trip and got me excited to explore more of the Washington wilderness.
PS – Kimbra and I prepared for the hike by making GORP (good ol’ raisins and peanuts). We were introduced to the word “gorp” at camp and thought it was well known, but it was an unfamiliar term to the rest of our group. What do you call trail mix? Have you heard the term GORP before?
