Last week, I got up at 3 in the morning with a couple of crazies that I happen to work with. On about 2 hours of sleep, we drove up toward North Bend and went to Rattlesnake Ledge. We got their later than anticipated and huffed and puffed our way up the mountain. We had to ‘lightly jog’ up this mountain, but the view was well worth it. We made it to the top with about 15 minutes to catch our breath and wait. We weren’t the only ones at the top, there was a rambunctious group of teenagers sitting near the edge, but we had a great spot. While our group and their continued to chat, as soon as the sun began to crest over the mountain, there was this beautiful couple of minutes of complete silence. It was incredible. Below are some of the pics we shot, they definitely don’t do it justice. This has definitely become one of my favorite hikes. Enjoy.
