7-mile walk, reprise

June 1, 2009

Yesterday F and I decided to try and walk off the damage from Saturday night Kiss the Cooks event, where we gorged ourselves on beautiful fresh asparagus and tart rhubarb in an assortment of forms.

We drove to Safety near University Village to start. The route:

We saw some really cool things along the way…Like Mount Rainier:

Ducks, turtles, herons, and more at Green Lake:

After we walked around the lake and through Ravenna, we decided to go to University Village to hit Red Mango–fat-free yogurt deliciousness.

It was a scorcher Red Mango Pomegranate and Tangolicious

All in all, a delightful way to spend the afternoon! 190 minutes of walking (but I forgot the pedometer, rats!) at a leisurely pace translated into 6 extra activity points for me, in exchange for the 2-point yogurt treat. Excellent!
