    Great job! Kudos to the organizers and to Bastyr for the fair. We stopped there to look around a little, found so many interesting presentations that we didn't get back to the QFC until around 6.

    St Edwards park was great today. This is a great example of why I like Volks walking, new parts of the park I had not seen before.

    What a beautiful stroll through the trails. Just enough hills to give you a real work out.

      What language is this, French ?? !! or "Frnsai" ?

  • Bob K.

    Hiking shoes or boots recommended as most of the walk is on trails. Poles could also be of help for some.
