When it comes to winter hiking near Seattle, I’m always a little nervous about driving on bad roads or ending up on a trail covered in snow (and not being prepared for it). So when I hiked Little Si and didn’t run into either issue, I knew I had to write about it.
If you’re looking for the perfect Mt. Rainier summer day hike, check out Summerland - Panhandle Gap. It offers everything from panoramic mountain views, to the possibility of seeing wild mountain goats.
If you’re thinking about visiting Bryce Canyon, take a break from pitching a tent and stay in a luxury tipi. This one was less than 30 minutes away from the park, and couldn’t have been more comfortable!
