Seattle Skyline from Mt Defiance

A Winter Hike in the Alpine Lakes

Mt Defiance is a hike I do year round. Normally by this time of year there would be over 5 feet of snow to contend with by the time one reached the top but this year, there is still less than a foot of the white stuff. I can't remember a time when I've seen so many people out on the trails this time of year taking advantage of the situation.
