It was sunny, don’t see that often in Seattle. I had been looking to get out on another hike in Issaquah and test my knee again. Chirico trail seemed like a good option. Pretty easy to average hike, 2 miles long, but it’s mostly uphill, so you have to take breaks in between. I was accompanied by Taryn and we started around 6 PM from the base. A few halts here and there and we were at the top by 7:15 PM. It was quite a sight. Mount rainier was looking amazing with a full view of its surrounding and the valley. Here is one of the shots  took from this trip. Have a few more, yet to be processed. Will post them soon. For now, here is the peek at classic rainier from NorthEast.
