Walk this way in Seattle
Walk This Way in Seattle are year-round fun and interesting Seattle neighborhood walks that blend urban areas with nature. This idea came about because my daughter and I love to walk together. It gives us great feelings of freedom, discovery and fun. So we had an idea. Why not create part urban and part nature walks that we could share with others.
