Yesterday was a beautiful October day here in the Pacific NorthWest, with pure blue skies and temps in the low 70s(F). A perfect day to ramble around the Sammamish Valley (east of Seattle) and make up for a couple of missed commuting days.
I head out of my apartment and within a mile climb up the valley wall. I stay along the top and eventually begin descending back down the same side. Unwilling to lose the altitude this early I turn onto the Tolt Pipeline trail.
