Mount Pilchuck - Where Zombies Hang Out

Not too far away from Seattle, Mount Pilchuck is one of the best day hikes in the Cascades. It’s short, offers great views, a fire lookout, and in bad weather, you might even see zombies. The above photo is proof that they exist, and they like to hang out at Mt Pilchuck.

Now, seriously, this is one hike that one must do at least once, because the views are just breathtaking. Lookout towers are cool and always a must-see.

But, if you get there and, like us, you get this ugly, ugly weather, just see if you can take a zombie shot!

Happy hiking!
