On August 2nd, I drove down to Tacoma and visited Point Defiance Park to do 4 miles on the Outside Loop Trail. I also stopped into Fort Nisqually. In all the years I have lived here and visited Point Defiance Park (and the Zoo) I have never gone to Fort Nisqually, so this was a first and I really liked it. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
|The Outer Trail is fun because you get great views|
|Otherwise you are just in areas like this|
|Raccoons were everywhere.|
|Blue trail markers are for the Outer Loop Trail|
|Lovely madrona trees|
|You can see the Narrows Bridge in the distance|

Hike-a-thon is in full swing now and I will be doing day hikes around Seattle on my layovers at home. I hope to do some of the Camino Portuguese when I have a layover in Lisbon, Portugal and I will be meeting Ryan during his through hike of the Pacific Northwest Trail and I will do some day hikes with him too!!
