    I have just been bit with the hiking bug and am itching to get out and explore. I’ve only been on a handful of legitimate hikes. These books look like a great resource.

    We love the Hoh Rainforest and hiking the Newhalem area especially Ladder Creek Falls! It’s so beautiful! The Trail of the Cedars is really easy and fun for kids! I would LOVE these books so we could find more to explore!

    The last hike I took was to poo poo point in Issaquah and I remember standing at the lookout watching hang gliders take off and ride the airwaves. Such unexpected tranquility. Always think about getting up the guts to go back and try it. The last Scenic trip I took was to snoqualmie falls where my wife told me stories of how she use to go there with her dad and brother when she was a little girl. I often google day hikes but soon get overwhelmed not knowing what to try. These books look amazing and I know we would enjoy getting one in your give away. Thanks for the hump day contest.
