Gold Creek Pond Snowshoe Trip
A short interpretive trail in the summer
Saturday, January 5th, 2008
My friend Julie who I used to go to church with in Seattle and I planned this trip and we each invited friends. She invited her friends Cara and Eileen who also went to our old church–Calvary Temple (now Calvary Christian Assembly)–with Julie after I left, and I invited my friend Kara. I gave Cara a ride up from Portland on Friday night (Kara was already in Seattle at the time) and we enjoyed the evening at Julie and her housemate Allana’s place, spent the night and got up for snowshoeing at Gold Creek Pond near Snoqualmie Pass on Saturday morning. We had a wonderful scenic snowshoe trip, then a great evening including dinner at my favorite restaurant, Thai Tom with Kara, Matt and Andy, and a few fun rounds of speed Scrabble back at Julie’s house. In the morning we all went to Rainier Avenue Church (Kara’s church in Seattle), grabbed some Vietnamese sandwiches and headed back to Portland so Kara could meet up with her family to head off to the Oregon coast. It was a very full but very fun weekend. Hope you enjoy the photos.
