Hike-a-thon 2015 begins!!

So on August 1st, I was lucky enough to be home in Seattle so that I could begin the Washington Trails Hike-a-thon with a local hike. I chose to do the Lime Kiln Trail outside of Granite Falls, WA.  I hiked for 5 miles today with temperatures soaring to 90 degrees. Thank You to the pioneers who built a railroad here so that many many years later I would have a nicely level path to hike!! And I also thank goodness for all the tall tall trees here in the PNW to give me shade along my hike.

From Susan and Don, Angele, Frank and Ruth, Teri, Janet,  and Mary!!  We have raised $395 so far for the WTA.  Just copy and paste this link into your web browser: or you can mail a donation to me (Checks should be made out to WTA -Washington Trails Association)
