Happy Day After The 4th Of July!
I ended up taking a second hike to Coal Creek Falls a couple weeks ago and recorded some video while I was there.

Over the weekend I hiked up to Coal Creek Falls in the Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park. Its a nice little hike with this great looking waterfall & stream in the center of the trail. Look below for some more pictures. I’ll definitely be coming back with the Camera in the coming weeks.
Total distance traveled was about 4 miles. Most of the hike is a super highway but it can get pretty muddy in some areas… Lots of people on the trail.
I originally found out about this trail through the Washington Trails Association, which is a cool website that lists all the great hiking trails throughout Washington state. Here is their article about Coal Creek Falls, and here is an article about other great winter trails that I plan on hiking in the coming weeks.
From Seattle, take I-90 east. At exit 13, go right onto Lakemont Boulevard SE and drive 3 miles. Just before a long bend in the road, go left into the parking area.

Found this awesome zombie themed art while browsing the web. Its drawn by an artist who goes by Jason Chan. He has some pretty cool imagery on his website, though some of it is a tad Not Safe For Work. You have been warned. His gallery doesn’t seem to be updated anymore. Instead he seems to be opting to post his latest art directly to his blog.
Also if his artwork looks familiar to you, its probably because you saw it in the special features section of the I Am Legend DVD. Jason was commissioned to do two of the comics for the movie. They turned out really well plus you can even view them online here. Warning blood and sad music.
I’d just like to take a moment to complain about the lack of awesome FCUK Batman The Dark Knight T-shirts in the US. See all those awesome T-shirts there at the bottom of this page? I’m particularly a fan of the Heath Ledger inspired Joker t-shirt.
Just this guy. I can’t even drive up to the Canadian stores because they only have 1 shirt to choose from as well. The spirit is willing FCUK! Its just that I don’t have the money/time to fly to Europe at the moment. Plus I don’t enjoy paying some chain smoker on ebay 3 times the price to pick one up for me either. Anywho thats my little rant for today. Enjoy the awesome t-shirts…
UPDATE (March 26, 09): Just checked the various FCUK online stores and they are no longer carrying any of the Batman shirts listed above.
