It friken rains in Washington

Postby oldranger » Fri Mar 14, 2014 9:21 pm

Spent the first week of March in Bellingham, Washington. It rained all but the first and last days. Luckily there are some nice urban trails with with compacted gravel trails that are seldom muddy so we were out hiking whether it rained or not. After and in one case during our hikes we were able to visit local breweries and brewpubs, too.

Many trees had fallen near or across trails due to lots of rain and wind


Oh! For you 9er fans that is a Seahawk hat I'm wearing. As you know the real Super Bowl was 2 weeks before the official one. Too bad the best 2 teams in the NFL are in the NFC.

Hey, c'mon, when in Seattle (or near Seattle, in this case)...

When I was out there a few weeks ago my daughter made me go to a football-game-watching party. Sheesh...
