Back for a Walk at Coulon Park

A Walk through Paradise – in Waimea Valley!

Need to get away?  Come with me for a walk in Waimea Valley!

The Ducklings of Clark Lake

Last week we thought we’d walk someplace new and discovered Clark Lake Park a short drive from our house.  Though it’s a small park, what it lacks in size and services it makes up for in tranquility and diversity, with 126 acres of meadows,… Continue Reading “The Ducklings of Clark Lake”

In the middle of a rainy April we picked the sunniest day for a walk at Flaming Geyser State Park where instead of a flame we found a flowing river, luscious forest and steelhead in  training – who knew there was such a thing?… Continue Reading “Flaming Geyser State Park, A Missing Flame and Steelhead in Training”

A Walk through Bellingham fueled by Rockets

I know you’ve been waiting so here’s the final story from our road trip last month that included Skagit daffodils, Fairhaven, and Western Washington University (here’s that story in case you missed it, though you probably didn’t.) Bellingham remains a special place to me… Continue Reading “A Walk through Bellingham fueled by Rockets”
