I solo-hiked on Squak Mountain – took the Margaret’s Way trail to Debbie’s View.

It is obvious that Squak used to have a number of people living there, including the locally famous Bullock heir, whose former fireplace still stands.

There are a few street signs still hanging, and the remnants of old roads.  Today, I noticed a sign clearly designed to help people looking for a family called the Martins.  I think I will see if there is any local history about this time – when was this?  Not all that long ago, I presume.

Very nice, cool day, the hike was about 6.8 miles out and back.  I love the stand of birch trees about 1/3 way into the hike:

At Debbie’s View, there was a nice view of Rainier:

As of now the plan is to hike with Derek (rain forecasts) on Thursday.  Should be fun.
