The ALLtech Hike-a-Thon team has been busy wracking up the miles and the donations this August to support Washington Trails Association, and we wanted to remind you that there’s still time to join the monthlong fundraiser.
With the last weekend of the Hike-a-Thon fast approaching, we wanted to offer one more trail recommendation from ALLtech Trustee Ken Myer to help inspire you to get outside and get active.
“If COVID has taught us anything, it’s that we really do cherish the time we spend out on the trails and in nature,” Ken says in the above video. “It’s good for the heart – physically – and good for the soul.
“And at ALLtech, we really want to support you in your efforts to be as healthy as possible.”
In the video, Ken recommends Lake Ingalls in the Teanaway, a 9-mile hike described beautifully by Washington Trails Association (WTA): “The lake is a spectacular sky-blue and surrounded by rocks that fall in giant slabs into the water’s sandy floor. Ingalls Peaks reach high above the lake on the one side, while Mount Stuart stands majestically to its northeast. There are few places as lovely as this.”
WTA also points out that Lake Ingalls can be crowded on weekends, so be sure to plan accordingly. While you’re at it, you might want to check out the the Trail Smarts section on the WTA’s site for hiking tips appropriate for all levels and specific to the seasons.
