Tuesday is now kiddo hiking day. We started the Tuesday hiking thing the first week in August, although it’s officially my plan for fall. With (almost) everything online this fall, I’ve managed to keep Tuesdays free and clear of anything.

Talus Loop

If I’m going to see a bear while hiking, I feel like this will be the place. Multiple bear chilling spots. Talk about dense forrest. At least in my book. Maybe all forests are dense? I mean, it’s trees galore

Swamp Trail

Moss Lake

The new weekend plan: a family hike. Preferably a hike we’ve never been on before. Today, Moss Lake. In the paper last Sunday, the Seattle Times highlighted a hike that has an old fire lookout. We thought that would be cool

Coal Creek Falls

The kiddos love a good hike, as do I. And we live in the perfect area to take advantage of hiking. It’s nice to get them outside to run off the massive amounts of energy they have. And for me,
