5. Climb a Mountain
We're surrounded by multiple mountain ranges in Seattle, but the most interaction people typically have with them is snapping shots for Instagram. This year, tackle one of the ultimate watercooler brags and climb a mountain. The big dog in these parts is Mt. Rainier, which boasts 9,000 feet of elevation. You can do the climb in as little as two days or as many as five. RMI Expeditions can train you and take you up several of the most popular routes.
