First Hike of the Year

When living in the PNW you don't have to travel too far to get away.  You can head in almost direction and find a hike that suits your comfort level.  The first hike to kick the year off for me was Denny Creek, just under an hour east on I-90 from Seattle.  This was one of those exits along I-90 that I've driven past so many times in my life and never bothered to stop, I sure was glad I did this day.
