My dad has a copy of “Best Washington Hikes with Kids”. His edition is from 1988; the pages are yellow and the whole thing looks like the Reagan-era relic it is. It also has notes on ever hike we’ve ever taken as a family.
According to my dad’s notes we first went on this hike in 1991. It’s a gentle walk through the woods with lunch at the lake. The path rolls through the trees. It’s peaceful. It’s good to be with my parents.
