I borrowed the Animoto idea from Kiley's blog. Wish my pictures were as good.
Wallace Falls is a beautiful state park just outside of Seattle. To get to the upper falls it's about a three mile hike. We tried this in the rain last year, made it to the middle falls, but the mud was so slippery we turned around. Little did we know, we only had just over a quarter mile to the top. In the sunshine, the views of Skykomish valley and the Cascade Mountains are spectacular.
There's also a railroad grade which is wide enough for biking and has a gentler terrain for running. It connects up to another trail leading to Wallace, Jay and Shaw Lakes.
