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.
- Fall Foliage
- 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.
