Hike-a-thon 2014 is going to be the BEST YET!

Wow so excited!! About our plans for the Washington Trails Association Hike-a-thon this year. Ryan will be home and we are going to do some hikes together. I am planning a Wine Trail theme this year with lots of hikes near wineries and in the Wine Country of Washington State!!

Here are a bunch of photos from previous years hiking.
Hurricane Ridge on the Olympic Peninsula. The Peninsula is always one of my favorite hiking destinations.
Cougar Mountain is always a great place to go hiking here in the Seattle area! I think I have done hikes there just about every year since I first participated in the 2005 hike-a-thon!
Thanks so much to Heidi, Janet, Slade, Susan and Don, and Diane and John for being the first folks to donate money to the cause this year! Diane and John have even been along with me as I got mileage for the hikeathon in 2010.
My first night backpacking was on the Baker River Trail after an aborted attempt to go to Artist Point that year, but this year might be the year we make it to Artist Point!!
$25-$99 Can provide treats for a team of volunteers

Ryan and I will be having more adventures this August in Washington and wherever else the trail takes us!
I'll be doing lots of hiking this August to help support Washington Trails. I hope you can help me out by donating a dollar or two to the cause! We've already raised $225 on the way to our goal of $1,000 this year...just follow this link and help me help Washington State Trails. Go ahead and pledge now and you won't have to remember about it come August....just sit back and let my Thank You postcard come to you! :-)   If you don't like sending money over the internet, you can always send
me a check (made out to WTA) or cash to Amanda Arkebauer  PO Box 16131 Seattle, WA  98116
