Looking for an outdoor escape this fall? Ken Myer, the Trustee for ALLtech, teamed up with partners Regence BlueShield at the GeekWire Summit last month to share some tips in the above video to help attendees “get out, get away in nature.”
Especially with the new statewide COVID-19 restrictions that are giving some Washingtonians cabin fever, hitting the trails is a great way to get you out of the house safely.
“I just wanted to encourage all of you to consider getting out on our trails,” Myer says in the video. “It’s great for your mind and your body and fall is just a wonderful time to get out hiking.”
A few trails he recommends:
- Tieton River Trail near Yakima, pictured behind Myer in the video
- Perry Creek Trail near Mountain Loop Highway in the North Cascades
- Greenwater Trail near Enumclaw
“Whatever trail you choose, I encourage you to get out, get away in nature,” Myer adds. “This is a wonderful time to explore our fantastic trail system.”
