Travel Tuesday: Exploring Barclay Lake

Jagged mountains, dense forest, and serene pools of water – the quintessential trifecta of PNW outdoor beauty – can all be found on a day trip to Barclay Lake. Cross rustic wooden bridges over babbling creeks, discover fantastical fungi in the woods, and take in sweeping views of the nearby peaks, all just 90 minutes outside of downtown Seattle! Click through the gallery below to get a peek at what a chilly weather visit to Barclay might look like, courtesy of local filmmaker Johnathon DeSoto.
