About 125 years ago, loggers began stripping the mountains around Issaquah in earnest to support the coal mining industry and a construction boom in neighboring towns. The mountain is now a popular hiking destination, and lush growth obscures much of the mountain's storied past from all but history sleuths. Join Tom Anderson for a trip into Tiger Mountain's past; it will be a day of tales and surprises, along with the unique scenery that draws hikers to the Issaquah Alps.
