A few weeks ago I went hiking in Bellingham with a friend. We went up to fragrance lake and let me tell you, I was not quite prepared for it. It was a beautifully sunny day but still quite cool in the shade. Parts of the trail were pretty steep but it was definitely worth the view at the top. We also took the side trail to the viewpoint. You can swim in the lake, though I’m not sure I would.
Afterward we went over to Larrabee state park to walk around a bit and warm up in the sun. While we were in Bellingham we also visited Pel Meni, the Russian dumpling restaurant, Mallards for ice cream, and Boomers for milkshakes before heading home.
