Got a great start to hike-a-thon. I was able to accumulate 13 1/2 miles this week and Ryan and I have raised over $1,100 Woo hoo Thanks so much to Kathy and Lisa who were instrumental in getting us to the $1,100 mark!! We still have 23 days to raise money to make our $1500 goal and get in more mileage! I am hoping to get to 60 miles this month...which would be a new personal best for me.
August 2nd, I hiked in the Soaring Eagle park and saw evidence of trail work....probably suspended due to the rain that day. They were building a turnpike on the Pipeline Trail.
August 3rd, I hiked the Interurban Trail in Milton, WA. This is part of a Rail to Trail line that follows the original Puget Sound Electric Railway that operated from 1902 to 1928 along this route, connecting Seattle and Tacoma.
Then I had to work a few days, but I was back out on the trails on August 6th with a 2 mile hike at Mercer Slough in Bellevue. I did the Bellefields Trail and the Heritage Trail around the Blueberry farm there, practically right in the heart of the city!!
