Today I went to the Tri-Cities and hiked part of the Sacagawea Heritage Trail in Kennewick. It’s a 23 mile loop (which I did not complete, but I will take my bicycle and ride the whole thing some time) that is on both sides of the river. There was a lot of time alone on the trail, but there’s also a lot of traffic from both hikers and cyclists.
I made it about 12 miles, part of which was a side trip to Bateman Island.
The rest was along the Columbia river. I managed to hike all the way to the bridge near the George Washington Parkway. I didn’t think I’d be able to, but it wasn’t quite as far as I thought.
There are lots of little parks along the river, and a marina, and places to launch a kayak. This is probably somewhere I can hike in the winter, too, so maybe I’ll be able to get fresh air through the winter, too!
