Green Lake


We spent Memorial Day on the trail to Green Lake. As our time is short in Washington we are anxious to get outdoors as much as the weather will cooperate. Mindful of the holiday, we had had the kids watch a documentary on the Battle of the Bulge the night before and Zachary--a very imaginative child, spent much of his time far away in the woods around Bastogne, lobbing grenades at German machine gun positions and (repeatedly) dying in a very heroic manner. His late Uncle Raymond, a veteran of that battle, would no doubt have been pleased to see the energetic, if not always historically accurate reinactment by his great great great nephew. More pictures below.

Emma was proud to have crossed this creek without any help.
We passed several stunning waterfalls on the way to the lake.
The lake itself was fogged in and didn't make for a very pretty picture. Chase took this picture of his Mom and Dad.
Dunn was a great help with his younger brother for the portions of the trail we let Luke walk.
