My Hike at the Abbey
By Linda Ross Swanson

This hike was the toughest thing I’ve ever done, and probably ever will do. While parts of the Pacific Crest Trail (PTC), are gorgeous, when you’re hiking 40-50 miles per day, you don’t really have the chance to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Safe Walking School Bus Routes

By Abra McNair

Many people reading this publication already walk for recreation and/or fitness, but what about walking for transportation? This could mean a jaunt to the store, strolling to a friend’s house, or commuting to work. If you have children, walking for transportation definitely includes getting to school on foot. (Bonus: walking for transportation still includes fitness!)

Total Package

By Dave Kirgan

Hiking to High Places
Beacon Rock

By John Gaudette

We are all challenged to find ways to get out and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, and that doesn’t involve snow. Beacon Rock is one of the best places to get out for a great hike and amazing view. It’s located on the Washington side of the Columbia River, just west of the Bonneville Dam.

Your Walking Buddy
Frustration and Behavior
By Doug Duncan

Dogs, for example, often become frustrated as a result of thwarting while on leash, behind a window or door, or while riding in a car. Typically the frustration occurs after a dog sees something that it would like to gain access to or avoid, but because of some barrier (leash, fence, gate, window, door, etc.) the dog is not able to do so...
