This is the most gorgeous hike in the fall. You will rise above Spirit Lake and view Mt. St. Helens close up. One can see the regrowth of trees and bushes (many red blueberry) after the 1980 destruction of the area. Also great views of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier weather permitting. Those wanting to carpool with me can meet at South Renton Park and Ride (the Grady Way side)at 6 AM. Questions? e-mail Marguerite at:
