Changed to Jan 17th (3rd Saturday of the month). Went to Skyline Lake for a beautiful sunny day of snowshoeing.
Changed to Feb 8th (2nd Sunday) - Postponed to Feb 21 -- Cancelled to take Alexia skiing (despite doctors reluctance).
Mar 7th (1st Saturday) - just after my birthday but well before Spring Break. -- Cancelled due to conflicting family schedules & medical tests. Did manage to get a short outing in at Point Defiance (sure, that counts!) on the 29th.
Apr 8th - took a day off work to play around at Heather Meadows and Cedar Lake.
Apr 18th (3rd Saturday) - RESCHEDULED for APRIL 26TH.
May 16th (3rd Saturday) - the weekend after Mother's Day (too late to use the 'shopping' excuse) - RESCHEDULED to May 23, 2009 (Saturday)
June 13th (2nd Saturday) - the weekend before Father's day weekend. Certainly your family will get enough of you on that day so you can escape for a day of hiking. Or... it's your early Father's Day present. Everybody wins!
July 11th (2nd Saturday) - weekend after the 4th of July.
Aug 8th (2nd Saturday)
Sept 13th changed to Sept 5th (1st weekend) - pressured by State Fair and Ushering duties at church, this hike will have to be during the Labor Day Weekend.
Oct 5th? (first Sunday) - Since I'm not getting an end-of-September hike and the hike scheduled for next weekend has turned into something 'bigger', I'm going to try to hit the trail this Sunday with hope of good fall colors. It could just as likely occur two weeks later I suppose. Based on how busy we've been... this is unlikely to happen, but I do have some time off to used before the end of the year, so I'm keeping my eyes open for a weekday outing possibilities during Oct/November before the deep snow arrives.
Oct 10/11 (Saturday/Sunday) - Special trip... invite only.
Nov 14th (2nd Saturday) - before Thanksgiving of course.
Dec 12th (2nd Saturday) - before everyone departs on Christmas vacations.
