Samish Overlook From Blanchard Upper Parking Lot

Twelve enthusiastic two-legged hikers and one four-legged one set off for Samish Overlook on the Lily Lake Trail and then zagged left to the overlook instead of heading for Lily Lake. Two of our party needed to turn back early due to a scheduling conflict, but ten of us made it to the Overlook, which was surprisingly   uncrowded on such a nice spring day. The sky remained overcast, but the air was reasonably warm and we enjoyed our lunches and the view of the islands and surrounding peninsulas and Olympic mountains before heading back down the trail. We shared the trail with only a handful of human hikers and dogs and three horses. It was a nice gentle hike with a good group of friends. Thank you to everyone who joined me.
