Rabbit Mountain

Rabbit Mountain

Rabbit Mountain has become my default hiking location. If I don’t have time to drive up into the mountains, then I go to the foothills to Rabbit Mountain where I can still get a leg-burner of a hike in a short period of time. This morning, I got up early so I could be on the trail by seven-thirty. I usually hike the the Eagle Wind Trail, a lovely four mile lollipop loop route that is mostly flat but includes a modest elevation gain of about 470 feet. It’s a wonderful place for an easy workout and beautiful views.

Planning has its time and its place, but sometimes it’s all about serendipity. Today I spent my lunch break at Lakewood Forest Preserve where I enjoyed a short hike along the shoreline of Taylor Lake.

We spent today at the Museum of Flight in Seattle where we’ve seen a bunch of stunning aircraft. The highlight of the day was of course seeing and going aboard Concorde G-BOAG, affectionately known as as Alpha Golf.

October had its chance to be the best biking month of the year. Instead, it decided to rain. It then proceeded to drizzle, pour, mist and pee down.
