The last hikes for Hikeathon 2022

 A terrific end to Hikeathon 2022, I made my goal of 30 miles hiked for the month all while working a full schedule! 

I hiked 2 miles on the Tolt Pipeline trail in Woodinville, WA 

There is the pipeline

On Saturday, I had to run an errand over by Lake Union, so I squeezed in a 2 mile jaunt along the Burke Gilman Trail and through Gas Works Park. 

Walkers on the right, bikers on the left


And I finished the month with a 3 mile stroll along the Des Moines Creek Trail near Sea Tac, WA


I turned around after the waste treatment plant

Another SeaTac arrival

Many thanks to Gretchen, Stephen, Kathy W. Ray, and Holly B. for their recent donations. we are up to $720, my total mileage comes in at 30 miles and I lost 5 pounds this month, just by bumping up my activity level! I've usually only worked on getting 10,000 steps a day, but doing my little 2 mile jaunts 3 times a week helped increase my calorie burn. Woo hoo. 

Washington Trails Association will still be accepting donations thru Sept 7th, You can cut and paste this link to go to my WTA fundraiser page

Thanks so much to everyone who has donated!
