2022 | Week 35

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Be fearless in your pursuit of happiness.”

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - a glance at 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Powered by passion and inspired by the Northwest, join me as I journey through life as an entrepreneur on a mission to make a difference in the lives of others, and in our community… one step at a time, one week at a time.


This week... I set out to explore deeper into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, our backyard. I knew I wanted to go to a lake, but deciding which one can be challenging. With so many to choose from, this forest is a great solution for those with an adventurous spirit. The name is fitting as there are several, and I mean several, lakes here as well as valleys and peaks of course. While hiking to Pratt Lake a few weeks ago, I saw the junction for Island and Rainbow Lakes and promised myself I would come back here soon. These gem-colored lakes are absolutely magical and can be seen from many vantage points, but hard to get to. Along the way, you will enjoy views overlooking neighboring lakes, such as Olallie and Talapus Lakes - which are also on my bucket list. So many lakes, so little time. What is your favorite Pacific Northwest alpine lake to explore?

CONGRATULATIONS to my buyer!! I am so happy for my client who is relocating to the beautiful Pacific Northwest!! He flew into town on Monday, we toured 7 condos that morning, made an offer that afternoon [after finding THE ONE], and our offer was accepted!! My client and his daughter are going to love their fully remodeled two-bedroom, top-floor condominium that has granite counters, new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, new flooring, a new washer & dryer, and recessed lighting. The primary bedroom has a massive walkthrough closet that leads to the bathroom. Not to mention the HUGE deck off the kitchen which will be great for entertaining! This condo is located near Silver Lake with close access to shops, parks, restaurants, freeways, and is in a great school district!

The 52 Difference.

My goal each year is to hike 52 mountains and sell 52 homes, one per week.

For each home sold, I donate $52 to Washington Trails Association in support of our aligned mission to protect the place we call home, the Pacific Northwest.
