Hikes/Walks

One of my favorite non-writing pastimes is exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and most of my hikes and walks are with a group from the Auburn, Washington, Senior Activity Center. I've featured some of these adventures on my blog via Saturday Snapshots (hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.) Links to my posts are listed alphabetically by location below.




"Walks" are described as being up to three miles long; "hikes" range in length from four to eight miles and are rated as to difficulty.
