Washington Trails Hike-a-thon 2022

It is that time of year again when I begin fund-raising for Washington Trails Association.  I am going to let the WTA speak for itself this year. They just finished creating a new trail on the Olympic Peninsula near Port Angeles, WA. It took 3 1/2 years of work to create this 3.5 mile addition at Striped Peak.  The blog post below has some great before and after photos and explains how they go about creating a trail.

Your donations during hike-a-thon help to make this work. From purchasing gear like hard hats and chain saws, to providing snacks for the volunteers working on the trails. And it is not just for creating new trails, but maintaining ones that are already there and might be damaged by storms and erosion. The WTA also advocates for our trails with the state legislature in Olympia, WA. So every penny I raise during hike-a-thon goes to protecting and creating recreational opportunities in the Pacific Northwest! Thank You so much to everyone who has donated in the past and I welcome any and all contributors! From $1 to $100, every donation helps make a difference in protecting and maintaining our Washington Trails.

or you can send me a check (made out to WTA (Washington Trails Association) or just a dollar in the mail would be very welcome. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported this cause in the past and hopefully again this year!
