Let's tour a park together, and try the trails!

Hey, the weather is awesome in Thurston County. It's been so sunny for 5 weekends in a row! If you can't make it to this meetup on April 4th, please email me a "vote" and I'll post the event again later. Let's hang out and walk the trails, at a cool Art park! I'm inviting some friends and other meetup groups to come. I'll be your totally cool tour guide, at this fun art park. It's a 10 acre park that's like the ultimate scavenger hunt - Can you find all those world-class sculptures hiding in the forest? Whether you're a high class connoisseur, or a busy mom who's bringing kids that love to run and play in wide open spaces, come one, come all. Let's hang out. Bring a bag lunch and your water bottles if you want. AND, did I mention, ADMISSION AND PARKING IS***FREE***??? :) If you guys want to, after the park tour, we can also take off for a slow-paced, easy-fun venture on the Chehalis Western Trail. We can go for just a ways. If you're up for a 4 mile venture, we could check out this really awesome lake nearby. So bring your bike, rollerblades, walking shoes, non-motorized scooter etc.! We can head back to our cars by 4pm or so, so everybody can get to their evening plans. ------------------ By the way!! Please look at this meetup page on Saturday, the day before, to make sure we're still on to go. If only a few of us can RSVP for sure yes, we might as well cancel and wait for a larger meetup. The more the merrier! Also, if it's suddenly raining bad, we might cancel. I know some of us have long drives, so, just trying to maximize the fun factor here! Thank you! ------------ For trail information, maps and mileage distances:

Again, no skill levels really apply to this ride. Just show up! Plan on a 2-3 hour ride. This is a great way to get in some easy exercise, grab some fresh air, laugh along the way and have spend a leisurely time, with time left for whatever else you plan for the day!"

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
