Seattle Explorers & Jr. MAC Hike - Lake Serene

What if Explorers and Jr. MACers seize the opportunity to celebrate Mother's Day in a truly special way? Picture this: immersing ourselves in the beauty of a day trek beside Bridal Veil Falls, followed by a delightful picnic lunch at Lake Serene, all while enjoying the captivating view of the majestic Mt. Index. It's the perfect blend of nature's wonders and a heartfelt celebration for a wonderful experience in honor of all Mamas out there.
