It's official. Having conquered Mount Si I'm now officially a Seattle hiker. Yeah!!! Sunny skies leaving Seattle this morning but cloudy east of the trailhead. Cool morning but you warm up quickly. Pretty soon the trail turned into a rain forest as the melting snow from the top of the trees came raining down, along with some snow. It was like my big sister was up above shaking the tree limbs and throwing snowballs! At around the 3 mile mark the shower stops and the snow on the trail starts. I put on the microspikes for the last 3/4 mile or so but I saw many without any traction device. And of course some people in tennis shoes. Views at the top were OK as the clouds were coming in. Views toward to Seattle were pretty good but views across the valley to Rattlesnake Mountain and to the east at Snoqualmie Pass were pretty socked in by clouds. I passed on the Haystack scramble as I wasn't too keen on scrambling over boulders covered in snow, especially since I had never done it before. Will be back in the spring to conquer the last piece!
