Washington Trails

TrailsI heard on the radio this morning that the Washington Trails Association has updated their phone app! I downloaded mine and it is really neat. The WTA.org website and their iPhone app is really comprehensive and has great tips and maps on how to find the best trail for you and your family. Use it to find a great way to spend time outdoors with the family.

Zip Line & Obstacle Course

Point Defiance has new zip lines open to the public this weekend! Ages 5 and up, get the kids climbing. Its kind of expensive, starting at $19.95 or $29.95 depending on the difficulty of the course. If you already have a membership, this might be more doable. Either way a special treat for a special weekend, this could be a TON of fun!
