Lord Hill, #Snohomish County, WA - #SaturdaySnapshot

Recently hikers from the Auburn Senior Activity Center traveled north to Snohomish County to explore Lord Hill Regional Park. Lucky for us, the weather cooperated and we enjoyed a crisp, sunny autumn day.
(Click on photos to enlarge.)

Our hike took us along shaded paths beneath towering trees. 




As planned, the group meandered along the Main Trail and River Trail to arrive at the banks of the Snoqualmie River in time for lunch. Salmon splashing in the water provided our entertainment. I wish I'd been able to get a picture of one. 


Because the trails are shared with horses, we had to watch where we stepped. However, we saw only a few equestrians and bike riders during our outing. The trails, intersections, and distances were well marked.




We returned to our starting point in the northwest corner of the park and then decided to walk a little farther on the Beaver Lake Trail. Unfortunately, we didn't see any animals on this hike, but we heard frogs croaking and birds chirping in the marsh. Altogether we walked about 5.5 miles.

That first picture--I can almost feel the silence, and the coolness. Smell the aroma of woodland. Lucky you. Thanks for sharing.

Lynne: It was a serene setting, and the hike wasn't too difficult. I agree--I'm a lucky lady to have this group available to me and to be physically able to participate.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.
