Who likes to read and then discuss the book? How about having a book of the month selection that the group can read and then on a designated walk/hike have coffee, drink or lunch/dinner afterwards to discuss? Books (either non fiction or novels) are selected with a walking/hiking/dog/fitness/adventure/inspiration theme. Read the book during the month and then later in the month we can get together to discuss. Suggestions for books you have read or are wanting to read are welcome.
For our inaugural meeting, let's meet and hike through SW County Park. These are easy trails through the woods. If we want more of a walk we can proceed down Olympic View Drive, along Talbot road and back up along 76th for a scenic loop.
Afterwards we can gather at the Corner Coffee Bar and Cafe for refreshments as we discuss the book and plan future meetings and books.
'Walking' by Henry David Thoreau
A meandering ode to the simple act and accomplished art of taking a walk.
Profound and humorous, companionable and curmudgeonly. Walking, by America's
first nature writer, is your personal and portable guide to the activity that,
like no other, awakens the senses and soul to the 'absolute freedom and
wildness' of nature.

Southwest County Park is a 120-acre, open space park within the City of Edmonds limits in southwestern Snohomish County.
The site encompasses a series of forested ravines and Perrinville Creek, which flow through the eastern portion of the Park to Brown's Bay on Puget Sound. Olympic View Drive winds through the site on its way from Lynnwood to Edmonds.
The site has two nature trails -- the larger trail system is on the north side of Olympic View Drive and a smaller one on the south side (inside of the bend in the road). Use of off-road vehicles is not allowed on the trails.
