Do you know why Mount Si is famous? Mount Si is located near North Bend, Washington and is where the 90s television show Twin Peaks was filmed. Vibram Five Fingers fan Kevin recently hiked up Mount Si in his KSOs and took these beautiful pictures.
It's a four mile hike to the top, and you are rewarded with a nice view over the Snoqualmie Valley area. Out in the distance, if you look closely, is Mount Rainier
. During the hike, I encountered another VFF enthusiast wearing brown KSO Treks! I also stopped to answer questions about the VFFs from a few other hikers along the way, so hopefully we have some more converts! Oh, and I found an evil squirrel on the way back down.
Kevin also mentioned many health benefits from wearing his Vibram Five Finger KSOs:
I've been an avid VFF user for over a year now. I always used to have knee and ankle issues, as well as frequent bouts of shin splints when running in shoes. This led me to almost totally shut down my physical activity and balloon up to almost 240 lbs. Since converting to VFFs, I've made my way back down to 175 and stayed there, without enduring the pain I subjected myself to before. I use them for running, hiking, weightlifting, and running errands. It's pretty safe to say that I love the FiveFingers!
Oh, and about that squirrel.....
After close examination, we have to agree with Kevin.
