HIKE 01: Margaret’s Way (Issaquah Alps, WA)
My brother scored tickets to hike the enchantments this September 2021 and I’m going on a bunch of hikes to get my butt in shape. Will be documenting and reviewing these hikes and talking about the gear I’m using.

A wet and sloshy hike up Margaret's Way. A few opportunities for views, but not on this rainy and misty Saturday. At this time of year it was very green and mossy. Very LOTR. First hike of the season and legs feel like they got a hard workout after this hike. Shows how far I have to go!
Did not keep me dry. Don't recommend for a rainy hike.
Hiking Boots: Hoka One
Amazing. A little bounce makes me feel like I've got Jordans on.

Great especially for the price.
