Alright, alright, this might have been a tough one for an afternoon hike but it is one of my favorite hikes around here. Six hardcore MBC members met the challenge and made it back happily to their cars before 5:00 pm just in time for the “Happy Hour” at Stones Throw Brewery. On a sunny day they experienced the well maintained stairs down the Rock trail path. As promised we have had a reasonable view of Mt Baker and the Twin Sisters Mountain Range through the leafless trees and on the west side of the trail a hazy view of the San Juan Islands. We got the blood pumping hiking up the Double Diamond trail and encountered only 4 mountain bikers flying down the trail. Each time we could get out of their way just in time. I hope everybody had as much fun as I did. Photos on the MBC Flickr Page.
