After the grand-kids left with their parents, Butch & I decided to go ahead & hike the Whitehorse Trail. We started at Haller Park & walked over the Trestle. Looking up - we were thrilled to see the Osprey now in place!

We headed to Resilience Arch & admired the new bricks that are much higher quality with deep etching that will hold up to the elements. From there - we were on the ballast rock of the old rail line.

|All the way from Darrington!|
|Views of the Stillaquamish~|
|Almost to Cloverdale~|

Beautiful from either direction~

I didn't have my GPS, so still need to check my records, but should have the distance recorded from a ride. Round-trip was probably about 7-miles :-) About half way back I thought of a quote from "A Knights Tale" - Chaucer: "To trudge: the slow, weary, depressing yet determined walk of a man who has nothing left in life except the impulse to simply soldier on"
My feet were speaking volumes by the time we got back to the park :-)
