Photo Friday Challenge: The Golden Hour
Couldn’t have asked for a nicer day, meeting for the first time my Canadian writer friend Genevieve and her husband Bill on their way through to Oregon.

A meander in the rain, a little less than 3 miles total.
Snowy Day Surprises
We ended up parking at Thorndyke and Halliday, so we didn’t start on the loop. We crossed the Magnolia Bridge but had to turn back before Expedia because the path was unpassable, so we decided to explore as we doubled back. We got a far-less-than-encouraging view of the crumbling structure under the Magnolia Bridge, which we had just crossed. We walked along the water on W. Marina Place, U-turned and picked up the beginning of the Elliot Bay Trail at Smith Cove Park, which got us back to the car. Total: 3.6 chilly but entertaining miles.
Thanksgiving Day Woodinville Turkey Trot
Rattlesnake Lake & Ledge
(For what it’s worth, this hike is misnamed as there are no rattlesnakes in the western portion of Washington.)
