Gearing up for our hike at the trail access area at Issaquah's Central Park. Tiny snowflakes swirled around us but they didn't stick. Still, I was glad to have on my thermal undies, wool socks, waterproof coat, and gloves. The weather was pretty cold.
The trail meandered over creeks, around logs, and between rocks.
Interesting moss and fungi on logs and trees.
Our leader (also named Sandy, wearing a green jacket) talking about the area and telling us about the trail maintenance performed by the Washington Trail Association.
And then we came across some WTA volunteers working on the trail. We thanked them for their hard work.
Here I am. Tired, but happy. I'm not exactly sure how many miles we covered, but based on my FitBit numbers, I'm guessing it was between 7 and 7.5 miles. I can feel every mile in my weary legs!
From the park's website: Winding through 1,200 acres above Issaquah and Lake Sammamish, Grand Ridge Park is the result of a unique agreement between Port Blakely, which developed the Issaquah Highlands and King County. For every one acre of developed land, Port Blakely agreed to set aside four acres of park land.
