West Tiger Mountain Hill Climb

West Tiger Mountain trail is an icon of the Issaquah Alps. There’s always plenty of foot traffic sweating its way to the amazing views overlooking the Puget Sound and the greater Seattle metro area. The hill also serves as launch for the soaring crowd to take flight. Spring in Western Washington is prime season for these folks. The lucky ones will launch from Tiger, catch a thermal up to elevation and go on glide for a cross country flight who knows how far. It’s common to see these people boating around the peak in search of that invisible lift on most clear afternoons. Next time you’re in the neighborhood remember to look up.

It was super cool to be able to see old paragliding friends Iain and Meredyth on top. Fair winds and cold beers.
