Urban Hiking in Federal Way, and Puget Sound too
While on a four day working vacation with my wife in Federal Way, Washington, I was able to take a few opportunities to stretch my legs and find some pleasant spots. There were a couple nice parks right in town, notably Celebration Park, where I wandered more than anticipated after I needed some emergency work on my car.
The BPA trail is a broad winding broad path beneath powerlines, but it had some nice foliage too. It was quite chilly in the shadows, and I turned off on a nature trail that seemed to veer into a sunnier grove.
Later in the day I again found my self on the edge of Celebration Park. It was walking distance from the auto shop as well as from where Denise was working, and I managed to find some lovely spots.
Later in the afternoon, after picking up the car, we headed west toward Puget Sound in search of seafood restaurants. Near Dash Point, a small beachside community, we walked at a waterfront park. It was gorgeous and cold. The food we ate later capped off the day perfectly, and even as the light slipped away, I remembered some lovely images of Puget Sounds.
