Bellingham hikes

Fragrance Lake: We hiked this popular trail for the fourth time. And probably the last. It starts at sea level and goes for 2.5 mile to the lake at 1,200 ft elevation – all uphill (see road level photo). Maybe we’re getting too old for these hikes.

Sure, the lake is pretty but 2.5 miles downhill is hard on the legs too. Most of the trail is just rocky, but you do have to watch out fo roots. Saw a woodpecker hard at work on a dead tree.

Stimpson Nature Preserve: a very nice 4 mile hike through old growth timber. There were cougar sightings here, but we didn’t see any (and didn’t want to). Lots of ferns and undergrowth.
