Last Sunday we decided to check out Lake Valhalla, located near the Steven's Pass area and along the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail). The weather did not look all that promising when we left in the morning. It even sprinkled slightly on the way to Steven's Pass, but instead of being caught in the rain, we were hiking in sunshine a great deal of the time.
However, it got pretty cold and windy at the lake, and we had to put on all our additional layers to keep warm. Being the adventurers that we all are, we could not stop ourselves from exploring the far end of the lake and headed off into the unknown along the very narrow, sometimes very steep and slippery trail. The extra effort was well worth it as the scenery was breathtaking and we had lots of fun scrambling over the huge boulders there. We finished the adventure with a foot soak in an enchanted waterfall followed by a giant serving of Molly Moon's ice-cream. The whole day was just pure magic.
“See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.
