Walking Mosaics


The Sammamish River trail is an easy river walk on a mostly level surface. We had a few obstacles because of recent weather.

Our Juanita Bay walk was clear and easy as was our next walk on the Centennial Trail.




Our walk at St. Edward State Park was more of a hike and one where you needed to watch your step.


On this winter day walk we had to dodge mud from recent rains and you always have to watch out for roots.


Linking up with Maggie at Normandy Life for Mosaic Monday.

Here in the U.S.A. Monday is President’s Day, a federal holiday. Banks and Post Offices and schools are closed.  This is a busy week coming up for us with a visit to the Tax Man, the hair dresser and we are facing a winter drive across the Cascade Mountain range. Here’s hoping and praying that our travels will be safe with no swerving or slipping and sliding! Also hoping the IRS is kind to our pocket book. I have full confidence in my hairdresser so no worries with that appointment. What are you facing this week?

  1. Such beautiful photos! Good luck with the tax man and your winter trip! We have Read Across America planned at school all week, so it will be a fun week with wacky activities! The following week I’m on vacation and I have plans to work on my spare room and visit people. 😉

  2. I look forward to your hymns every Sunday. Such beautiful language to honor our Lord Jesus Thank you Ellen. Krista

  3. That looked like a lovely what, even with the considerable obstacles!
    I love the place names in your part of the world – Snohomish, Sammamish, Pyuallup, Sequim….so full of character. I wish you a safe journey as you head over the mountains.

  4. I love these walking pictures. You should be on the fitbit commercials!!!! We have a holiday today as well over here – Family Day – and are experiencing Spring like weather! Perhaps I should take your lead and get out there walking. Safe travels …

  5. Thank you for the reminder about Presidents Day! And I was just planning a bank run.

    We have precious few of these walking trails. Oddly enough, one in town goes along the southern border of John’s property. I think it has been taken over by snowmobilers now in winter. You do a great job of using the available resources. Great pictures, too! I can almost smell the forest.

  6. Despite the weather your walks/hikes were through beautiful scenery, places with such unusual names, too. I’m guessing that they are Native American in origin?
    Have a safe trip and don’t worry about the Tax Man!
    Happy MM.

  7. I do pray that you have a safe trip going across the Cascade Mountains. Thank you for sharing your walking pictures and allowing us to see what the weather is doing in another section of the country.

    I have an appointment with my hair dresser tomorrow and a visit with my mom a bit later in the week…and a surprise party for our pastor and his wife on Saturday.

    Praying for safe travels for you!

  8. What a lovely group of trails to be able to hike! Loved all your pictures, looks like the rain may have caused some overflow! Hope that all your appointments go well, and your trip over the Cascades uneventful 🙂

  9. Beauty walks — and I’m glad you were able to get outside; your weather looks pretty good now. Take care on that trip over the Cascades …. we’ve done that more than a few times in the winter (but would hate to think of trying it again now as we’re so out-of-practice). Forgot to mention on my comment above that I loved that Guard Dog (my kind of pet) and your clever use of all the Gs!
