seattle trip [in pictures] final part

July 9, 2011

Abundant sunshine and temps in the 70’s = our 4th of July. It begged for another day of adventure outdoors.

So, we got our hiking stuff together and headed to Rattlesnake Lake.

(The park was packed with families having their 4th of July picnics, but we finally found a place just for us)

(After relaxing by the lake for a while, we decided to hike to the ridge. It was a busy trail, but the hike/view was worth it)

(It felt like an enchanted forest. So green and dense. Moss on everything. Ferns. It was breathtaking)

After we finished the hike down, we got back in the Jeep and made a stop at Snoqualmie Falls.

After the falls, we found an Irish pub in a small town nearby and I got theย hamburger/french fries I had been craving ๐Ÿ˜‰ We relaxed and enjoyed dinner and then headed for Seattle to catch the fireworks later that night.

We took the train into Seattle which was so much fun. We got coffee at the very first Starbucks, did a lot of walking, grabbed a taxi and eventually found a place among the thousands of people at Gas Works Park to watch the firework display over the bay.

It was a wonderful show – so magical. Matt even got sparklers for us to light after the show so I could cross that off “The List” ๐Ÿ˜‰

I didn’t want the day to end because I knew I would be flying home the next day ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It was really a perfect 4th of July and the best weekend ever.

I couldn’t have asked for more.

Thank you, Matt, for making my trip so special. I had the time of my life ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Love the pictures, Hannah! LOVE them!!
