BEST WESTERN Plus Plaza by the Green
Travel Blogs from Kent
Nothing overly special today. We flew. Southwest, through Denver. Flights were rather smooth, arrived early on both. Only things of note were the airport being more crowded than we expected (we weren't early enough to beat the Memorial Day weekend crowds apparently), and the steward with the cute Aussie accent. We'd hoped to see Rainier as we flew …
In order to take full advantage of the rare sunshiny days in Washington, Kristin & I planned a full day of being outdoors for my first real day there. She and Brian recently started to enjoy some hiking and had found a nice hike, that is an easy 2 mile round-trip trek (which is especially important when you have 2 young kids with you!) and ends at Franklin Falls (in Snoqualmie Pass.) The river runs all along the trail, which is surrounded by an abundant evergreen ...

I sat and visited with some ladies who were feeding giant catfish then chatted with some Buddhist monks at their temple as they swept the ...
