The last 8 miles for Hike--a-thon 2012

Back home in Seattle again. My mile high hiking got derailed. Hurricane Issac took it's toil on the East Coast and airline schedules. On the 29th I did 2 miles at the Evans Creek Preserve near Redmond, WA. Washington Trails Association volunteers built a boardwalk here! Evans Creek Preserve The Blackberries were ripe, wish I had brought a container for them.

The next day I did 5 miles on the Tolt Pipeline Trail out in Woodinville, WA. This pipeline provides water to Seattle! The trail is used by lots of locals walking dogs and riding horses.
And finally on the 31st of August, I did my last 3 miles hiking the trail to Lake Dorothy!
For a grand total of 52.2 miles for the month of August. I made my goal of 50 miles hiked and as of today, Ryan and I together raised $1,050 dollars for Washington Trails, so we made our goal of raising $1,000 also! Thanks so much to everyone! And our last minute pledges from Sarah, Lou and Alisa helped to bring us up to our goal! (I wasn't worried, okay maybe a little bit)
