    As a few of you may know by following my other posts, I like hiking and backpacking a lot. Anyways, went out to Table Mountain today in SW Washington. This was actually one of thte hardest hikes I have done. Trail is rated difficult.

    Here is the place I climbed to (Google Pic).

    Here are a couple shots I got.

    A cool view into the sky on the trail up.

    A cool little mushroom I saw on the way up.

    The awesome view from the top.

    The view was well worth the tiring hike.

    Looks like an awesome trip buddy. Me and my team is planning a similar kind of trip next month. Once we achieve the target for this month, we will be packing our bags for one hell of ride.

    Neat! I used to go hiking, although I stopped last year after I broke my last DSLR (which I've since replaced) after I tumbled down the mountain.

    Enjoyed your Journey... Nice pic...
    Me and friends like hiking. But here are no such hiking hills or mountains to climb up. The only way we enjoying is cruising our bikes to the nearest hills and make some trekking there. And planning for a trip to Himalayas..

    Nice one man! In the UK we have this challenge called the three peaks. You basically have to climb the highest mountain in England, Scotland and Wales in under 24 hours. Including driving! We did two then our drivers knee went so we had to stop but still it was great fun. Did you eat the mushroom ;-)

    Rock on, man. We were in Seattle last week, didn't get the chance to do any hiking at all, but next time. Did get up to Yosemite, though, and saw Rainier from the plane as we departed.. Ridiculous mountains out west!

    Where are you going?

    Get out there and do it. It is good for the soul, mind and body.

    That sounds pretty awesome. Maybe some day I can come over there and do it myself.

    If you ever make it to portland, hit me up. Ill take you to some awesome places to see.

    That looks awesome mate. Bulgaria looks beautiful.

    I'm super jealous OP. We only have hiking trails going through forests. There are no mountains around us. There's a lot of rock formations, but no mountains. So I've never hiked up a mountain before.

    I've always wanted to go though. It looks like it's so much fun, with all that fresh air and nature. And mosquitoes. And bugs. And allergies.

    Is that a pine cone next to the mushroom? It looks like a rose. That's kind of neat.

    Did you see any animals?

    I just want to know whether there are animals in your hiking area?
    In case if you unfortunately met an wild animals while hike what will you guys do? ;)
    Because in my native there are more wild animals so can't able to go there through hike and the main reason is it is not a good place for hiking. :(
