Hiking & Backpacking

November 13 2006 Hiking & Backpacking Newsletter

This is the last month of the year to visit the gorgeous Seattle Japanese Garden. I was there for a walk last week, and the leaf colors are outstanding, even this late in the fall. Rich, deep maple leaves litter the paths, and cling to the manicured trees. The vividly colored Koi burrow into the muck at the northeast end of the pond (the part that gets the last bits of sunlight during the short Washington winter days). The turtles are practicing Zen mindfulness, standing still as little stones in the chill air. It's a great time of year to see the garden wind itself down for a long winter's rest.

If you miss the park this year, it opens back up on March 1st, so save this newsletter if you are planning a visit to the Seattle area:

Seattle Japanese Garden at Washington Arboretum
This short nature trail through a masterful Japanese garden will bring out the peacefulness of your inner nature. It's impossible not to be moved by the magic of this lovely representation of the mountains, rivers, forests and orchards of Japan.
