#Hiking and #Walking - 2017

Every year the director of the Auburn (WA) Senior Center opens his home for a hikers and walkers potluck luncheon. Isn't that nice? Our feast is followed by an award ceremony where we are given Certificates of Achievement. Believe it or not, I walked and hiked 171.5 miles in 2017. Pretty good, huh? Quite a few people covered more miles than I did, with some exceeding 1,000 miles as their grand totals, accumulated over years of outings with the senior center. Woohoo!


You'll find a list of the hikes and walks I've featured on my blog (including their locations, length, and difficulty) on the "Hikes/Walks" tab above. I'm looking forward to racking up even more miles in 2018.







P.S. The beautiful waterfall picture on the certificate's background was taken at Multnomah Falls, Oregon.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Judy, and leaving a comment. I was actually surprised that I logged that many miles. It was so much fun.

That's inspiring, Sandy. My grandkids' elementary school has a "hundred miler" club, and they walk around the school's inner perimeter (the grassy fields) to accomplish this. What a great early intro to health and fitness. Congrats to you, and keep those beautiful posts coming.

Good for you!! My walking is city walking but I do enjoy it.

Lynne, Laurel-Rain, and Jackie: Thanks for commenting on my blog post. Hiking and walking are fairly new passions for me. I've had a great time getting to know many wonderful people through the Auburn Senior Center's program. I think these experiences have added years to my life.
