Rope Swings and Railroad Tracks

A few nights ago we finished dinner and Diana says, "You wanna go for a hike?" So we hopped in her car and headed for a place known as The Bluff.
 

We'd been here before, in the Fall when the path was covered in gold.

 
 
 
As you come out to the bluff, to the left there's a set of stairs that look inviting and pique your curiosity!
 
 
 
It's a beautiful forest, there are so many birds and you can hear the small river running back and forth on either side as you hike down the trail.
 
 
 
 
 
We walked over small, man-made bridges, plus fallen trees and rocks. The trail would get narrow, then open up again. The temps have been so warm here lately, but it was so cool and beautiful among the trees!
 

 
 
 
About half way down we came across a rope swing!
No. I did not. :)

 
But here's a picture of Diana swinging on it when her, Sharaya and Allie were here a few weeks before!
 
 
 
 
The trail ends up at Puget Sound, right by the railroad tracks.
 

 
 
 
Back up at the top of the bluff, looking down at the forest we just walked through.
It really was a beautiful day for a hike!

Thank you for the lovely photos. I almost feel as though I was on this beautiful walk as well!
