Preacher Mountain
August 24, 2008


You start out crossing this fabulous bridge over the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River


Another view of the bridge


Along the way are some beautiful waterfalls


After 4.5 miles you end up at pretty Rainy Lake


There's a plaque on the back of a boulder in memory of George Lewis, who used to stock this lake with trout


His trout are still here!


The south end of the lake has some great boulders for lounging around on, or jumping into the lake from


You now have to work your way steeply cross country and off trail to a pretty little lake above Rainy Lake


From the ridge ascending Preacher Mountain you can look back down on the small upper lake


2200 feet later, happy and tired, finally on top!


Chair and Kaleetan are standouts from here, as is Lake Caroline in front of them


On the way out, we found this nicely sized salamander
