Goat Lake

After originally planning a trip to enjoy the desert side of Washington, I learned that the weather was supposed to be nicer on the West side. We figured that there was no reason to drive for longer for a colder hike- so we happened upon the Goat Lake page on WTA. It looked nice- so we went for it.

This turned out to be a good idea as the lake was quite pretty on this partially cloudy Winter day!

The waterfalls were nice along the way as well- we came up via the lower trail and returned on the upper trail- which made the trip about 11.5mi total. The hike was much more interesting as we did not have to backtrack on the trail to get back to the car and gave a different perspective to the view.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!
