Denny Creek Trail
January 26, 2013
Difficulty: 5 out of 10
Distance: 9 miles roundtrip
Elevation Gain: 2,300 ft
Time: 4 to 5 hours
Location: I-90 exit 47
Users Group: Hikers & Leashed Dogs Only
Permits: Northwest Forest Pass Required
Trail Conditions: Packed Snow to 8″ to 12″ Of New Snow
Hiking with: Linna Wei (wife) & Macho (dog)

Linna Wei (wife) and I decided that we needed to get our overly active dog Macho out for some serious exercise and taking him out in the snow will wear the overbearing terror out every time. We had a late start today so we didn’t make it up to Melakwa Lake, but our objective today was to get out of the house, exercise Macho and do some snowshoeing…goal accomplished.

On the way back home (Seattle), we stopped at Blue Ginger in Bellevue for some hot Korean soup. When I am with my wife we usually will stop at a Korean or Chinese restaurant after hiking or snowshoeing, but when I am with my homeboys we normally hit the North Bend Bar and Grill in North Bend, Washington.

Go ahead....say something!
