Cascade Mountains

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth." -Psalm 121:1-2

This photograph, looking towards the Cascade Mountains, was taken at the beginning of the trail to the old Snoqualmie Train Tunnel, at Snoqualmie Pass. Trains no longer pass through this tunnel, but many hikers, bikers, and horseback riders use this tunnel as a way to pass from Eastern Washington into Western Washington, or vice-versa. The trail to the tunnel is about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile long, and the tunnel itself is about 2-1/2 miles long. The hike is an easy one, and well worth taking. Two things to remember to bring when doing this hike are a jacket to wear in the tunnel (it stays around 50 degrees or less most of the time and it "rains" in many places in the tunnel) and a flashlight as there are no lights in the tunnel. Happy hiking!
