Inlet lake to North Lake, near Stillagaumish River

Saturday's weather was terrible: flooding rain. However, I'd committed to join an outing with a Meetup hiking group I joined a week ago. A group of outdoor enthusiasts who appreciate the beauty of the mountains near to home and who are game to embrace the season. I'm glad I went. While I enjoy my solo hiking forays and mushroom hunting in the woods, it's good for me to socialize a bit more too. It's all part of embracing a new self. Scenes like this bring wistfulness for sure, but it's not raw grief so frequently. That's progress.
