After we unloaded all the food at his home, we got back into the vans and headed to the nearby Snoqualmie River Trail.

The flat path was paved with crushed rock and ran alongside the Snoqualmie River. Patches of snow covered the grass underneath trees that lined the path, and a layer of ice crusted the edges of nearby shallow ponds.
Though the sky was overcast in the morning, we didn’t have rain or snow. The temperature stayed in the twenties (F) all day. I knew the weather would be cold and dressed accordingly. Long underwear under my jeans, ski mittens, wool socks, a scarf around my neck, and my heavy hooded coat. I wasn’t cold at all!
At the end of our walk, we got back into the vans and headed back to the house for lunch. Lots of yummy food. Afterwards, some people opted to return to the senior center, so they filled one van and left. The rest of us went on a walk around the beautiful neighborhood.
By then most of the clouds had disappeared and revealed gorgeous views of the surrounding snow-dusted mountains.
The total mileage shown on my FitBit for the day was 6.35 miles - not enough to burn up all the calories from the potluck but lots of fun.
