Swim at Mason lake and hike to Mt Defiance

An absolutely fantastic day which included hiking, berries, swimming, scrambling and stunning panoramic views. This event was organized in the memory of a hiker who was with meetup group.

After going on the trail for sometime we took the old trail to Mason lake. This had a huge rockfield which was fun to cross. Then we reached Mason lake and to my surprise, the water wasn’t that cold. I jumped into the water and swam for sometime. Then we left for Mt Defiance where we had awesome panoramic views and did a some scrambling. I could see Mt Adams, Mt Rainier, Glacier peak, Olympic Mountains and tall Seattle buildings. Yesterday I saw Mt. Baker and Shuksan from close. I had a big fall while coming down which could have been serious considering lots of tree branches but fortunately nothing happened. ┬áThis was one of the best weekends I have ever had.
