Gorgeous day today… wanted to take advantage of it… so, packed up Zach the Dog and the two of us headed out to Snoqualmie to hike the Kendall Katwalk… ended up being a 10 1/2 mile hike and took ~4 1/2 hours, and it was truly amazing! About 4 miles of the way up the mountain, an A6 Jet came roaring thru the pass tilted on its side… was just blasting! Some fellow hikers who I passed told me that they’re based on Whidby Island… awesome… by the time we got to the Katwalk, I was extremely tired… still sore from the Half Marathon… but the views were worth the pain… and, most important, Zach the Dog loved it!
Officially made the decision today to return to work next Thursday — not sure what the final decision maker was, but ultimately I think it is the right decision for me right now. Took Zach the Dog to the Magnuson/Sand Point dog park today, and what a gorgeous day it was in the Pacific Northwest — the Cascade and Olympic mountains were both out in full force. Zach was in and out of the water — so much that I thought he might actually go swimming, but no, he limited it to where he could stand.
