Beautiful/peaceful hike.. and would be an equally good hike to run.

Start at Mitchell Creek Park instead of the directions given. You’ll go to a neighborhood where parking is prohibited without a permit. See my recording. Also with the quarantine, it looks like this park will close too. It was a great hike with small waterfalls and plenty of wildflowers. If you want a good workout/have time, climb mt Olympia(recording) too. Will do it again when quarantine is lifted.

Our hike today was splendid! The trails were moist but we encountered no real mud issues. Many creek crossings and a few beautiful small waterfalls cascading down slopes and rocky terrains. We ran into a swarm of Hibernating ladybugs which was a delight to see! It is known that ladybugs will emit a chemical known as pheromones which attract hundreds of other ladybugs to the same spot so they can group together and protect theirselves from harsh elements during the winter months. As they hibernate for a couple of months, they will appear asleep as they slow down their metabolism, then survive from their fat reserve they had stored through the summer months. When you see these magnificent swarms of ladybugs in hibernation, it is known as “A loveliness of Ladybugs “ and that indeed is what it is...lovely.
