Mountain Hiking in 1902

Mountain Hiking in 1902

This photo wasn’t taken in Kent, but it is of some Kent residents on vacation! They are crossing a glacier near Monte Cristo on July 17, 1902. Can you imagine hiking in the snow in those dresses?!
“Monte Cristo is a ghost town northwest of Monte Cristo Peak, in eastern Snohomish County in western Washington. The town was active as a mining area for gold and silver from 1889 to 1907, and later became a resort town that operated until 1983.”- Wikipedia
