Gotta get 15.5 miles in only 4 days!!
I spent Friday in North Carolina between trips and did not expect to do any hiking. But to my surprise while out shopping with my stepmom, I saw this greenway trail just across the street from the shopping center. So while she was busy in Stein Mart, I was able to add a mile to my mileage total!!! Woo hoo
Sunday back in Seattle for a layover and I dashed over to Dash Point State Park and did 4 and 1/2 miles on multiple trails. Once you get away from the beach, there is a vast network of mountain biking/hiking trails. This being a gorgeous, sunny Sunday, there were a lot of folks on the trails. Happy to say that the mountain bikers were very courteous to the lowly hikers in their midst!!
On Monday I was able to do 5 miles on the Soos Creek Trail in Kent!
Tuesday was another gorgeous day and I did 2 miles at Lincoln Park on the Beach trail and the Bluff trail.
Ryan and I are still asking for pledges to contribute for the protection and maintenance of Washington State Trails. We just need another $180 to make our goal of $1,500. Please consider making a donation, no amount is too small. Just follow the link posted below. Thanks so much!!
