I've heard of Mailbox Peak being one of the torturing hike in Seattle Area since I moved here, and I have experienced
It started off in a very lushy forest, and switchbacks started after about 0.5 mile. We are lucky it was a very sunny day with
no chance of raining. The trail was very torn, being in spring time, the snow melt made the trail very soft and muddy. Most
tree roots are exposed on the trail, making it difficult to place your footsteps.
But the reward came after you got above the tree lines. You can see the entire valley, and as far as Mt Rainier in the horizon.
We got to the Mailbox Peak and enjoyed our lunch break. It was an awesome day.
Don't shoot, we come in peace!
No, it's not your torn shoelace, it's dead snake.
Approaching the trailhead.
Think twice before you start on the trail!
The lushy forest will give you a false impression of what is coming up.
The green is so amazing !
Approaching the tree line, you can see the entire valley from here
A few patches of snow is still there on top in June ????
It's little rough for my trail runners.
This is the only flowers I saw on the entire slope up Mailbox !!
That is the peak ... finally!

We were the volunteer Postal Service workers, who delivered to the Mailbox Peak on Sunday.
Mom was securing the baby boy before heading down.
