Margaret - It took us about three and a half hours, round-trip, including the scramble up Haystack.

This looks like a great hike. We will have never try it. Thanks for posting. Coincidentally, weRead More heard photographer Chris Jordan give a preview talk about his upcoming film, Midway. He is the artist featured at Seattle Center a few years ago who created the Running the Numbers project. Anyway, he introduced his talk last night with a picture to be released soon of Mount Si forest--on the trail you describe. It is a beautiful old growth forest, but when you zoom in very close, you realize it is created by a huge number of cigarette butts (384,000--the number discarded every 15 minutes.) Cigarette butts are like mini-toxic waste sites. They capture most of the toxins of the cigarette and store them in a non-degradable plastic core. The picture has not been released yet, but here is a sample of his work, a view of the moon made from 29,000 credit cards, the average number of U.S. bankruptcies per week in 2010.
