Normally we look back on our year and make bold new goals for the upcoming year. This is the thing to do apparently. I decided that my life is actually going quite well as-is, I am not going to make a goal of beating my hiking miles this year as I don’t think that will be possible but I hope to get out, enjoy life, and explore as much as possible. Maybe my goal should be to take more pictures!
I spent New Years Eve hiking up one of my favorite lookout mountains- Granite Mountain. Over the last few years, I have enjoyed every lookout tower that I have been to and I love learning the history of the dying landmarks. We made it to the top around 12:30 so we missed seeing the Seattle fireworks but people in the valley below were lighting off quite a few (and shooting their guns… which was a little unnerving as we probably made for nice targets on the hill with our headlamps.
So I spent most of the night taking pictures. Here are some of the results:
Absolutely phenomenal place to spend the last moments of 2014! I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when I woke up to the amazing scenery.
