Winter Chill

A week ago I was hiking in the foothills of Los Angeles, feeling warm in a tank top and remembering what it feels like to live in a place without seasons.

One week later I was hit with reality, back in Seattle with weather we Seattleites don’t know what to do with — cold and sunny.

Feeling like it was a crime to stay inside, we bundled up to brace the mid 20’s temps and headed to Rattlesnake Ledge for a crisp hike.

After no less than four falls on the icy trail, we made it home in one piece — with rosy cheeks and piping hot chocolate in hand.

Cheers to kicking off winter.
