Hikeathon 2023: Airplanes and more Airplanes and a Dragonfly!

One of my favorite urban hikes for hike-a-thon has to be the Cedar River Trail through Renton, WA. I love looking at all the airplanes being made at the Boeing facility there. I hiked 2 miles along this trail on Thursday. 

On Friday, I was on the Des Moines Creek Trail for 2 miles and I saw so many airplanes!! It is right under the flight path for planes taking off from SeaTac Airport and it was super busy. If you want silence in the woods, this hike is not for you, however, if you want blackberries, this is a perfect hike, bring a bucket!! 


Delta is so clever, they put their name on the bottom of the plane, so you know it is them

On Saturday, I did one mile on the Longfellow Creek Trail in West Seattle. 

The Dragonfly pavilion

I  have hiked 20 miles so far this month and we have raised over $900 so far!! Thanks to all my co-workers who gave up a Starbucks to give me $5 this week! LOL  For those of you who have sent me cash and checks, they don't show up on the website immediately, but you will get a Thank You Postcard from me. 

If you have not donated yet, you can cut and paste this link to go to my WTA fundraiser page

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!
