Since the mountains are more-or-less off limits to most of us in WA, who aren't lucky enough to live at the base of them anyway, let's start a thread for reports from outings near your home. I realize people on this forum live all over the state so this should be interesting. Walking, hiking, running, biking, dog-walking - whatever. Hopefully we can do this without it devolving into something bad and keep us all from the worst case of cabin fever imaginable. Please don't clutter this up with debate about the closure, there are other threads to debate that. Whatever your opinions are we all just like to go outside, so share photos of outings in your area!

Myself, I am biking around the greater Seattle area and also upping my running mileage.

Covert moonlight hike to the hot springs.  Apologies for low quality pics.  Left the good camera at home.

Yep, definitely classic West Seattle viewscape.  I see you discovered that bad brushfire we had last year in Lincoln Park.    ~z

Sequalitchew Creek Trail, Dupont. Crowded, but its an old road so easier to give people space.

a neighborhood stroll. 3.4 miles, 198 ft of gain

I moved out of my apartment in Fremont and put everything in storage before going to Chile.  Fortunately I have some incredibly generous friends with extra houses where I can hunker down for awhile.  But it's impossible to get any elevation gain in my current neighborhood!  dizzy.gif
