You do not need to read the book to do the hike, but I am giving you a movie option this month.
You can either read the Temple Grandin Book or Watch the Temple Grandin movie or do both. The movie is not the same as the book but will give you some insight and is a very interesting well done film.
Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals by Temple Grandin, Catherine Johnson
The best-selling animal advocate Temple Grandin offers the most exciting exploration of how animals feel since The Hidden Life of Dogs.
In her groundbreaking and best-selling book Animals in Translation, Temple Grandin drew on her own experience with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into how animals think, act, and feel. Now she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life—on their terms, not ours.
This is essential reading for anyone who’s ever owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal.

From I-90 East - take the Lakemont Blvd. SE exit (exit 13), toward SE Newport Way. Turn right onto West Lake Sammamish Pkwy SE/Lakemont Blvd SE. Go through the stoplight at Newport Way. Go through the stoplight at 171st Ave SE (Matthew's Thriftway). Continue on Lakemont Blvd for approximately .8 miles. Park is on the left side at 5808 Lakemont Blvd SE.
I will try to figure out a nearby coffee shop we can go to for discussion after hikes or suggestions welcome.
