Right now the Cascadian Nomads are suffering from cabin fever due to extremely cold temperatures outside and my feeling a bit sick. Last week, though, fit dogs Wilhelm, Brychwyn, Huxley and I journeyed all the way around Alki point in West Seattle, from the West Seattle Bridge to Me-Kwa-Mooks Park. Our entire walk was a little over ten miles. We have had several posts about Alki point, from visiting the lighthouse to trekking through the forest of Schmitz Park to Alki beach. But the walking trail all the way around the bend of Alki, from Elliot Bay (pictured at Seacrest Park) to Puget Sound (pictured at Me-Kwa-Mooks Park) is a very popular tourist, pedestrian and cycling trail that we don't frequent. However, on a cold, partly cloudy and windy day, like we had last week, it is possible to have most of the gorgeous route all to ourselves.

The panorama photos from our walk were taken less than an hour apart. (Yes, I toted their 12th dog vests for the last half of the walk; those vests weren't made for ten mile treks!) The wind and waves on the sound were amazing compared to the calm bay we had just admired. I took the Vine between Seacrest and me-Kwa-Mooks Parks, before we reached Alki Beach Park. I just love to see those happy fit dogs enjoying our neighborhood adventures. This was truly a fun fit dog day to remember.
Do you have any great neighborhood urban hikes or local fit dog adventures that you only do once in a while?
