Not the shortest hike I’ve been on but pretty close! Rainy weather, but my son and daughter-in-law wanted to go on a short hike with the kids, and who am I to say no. Salmon Creek Greenway was close to home and we went on a nice loop hike.
We visited the turtle pond (but only ducks present) and looped around a large field. Salmon Creek was very high but not quite flood stage! A Red-Tailed Hawk actually landed in a tree near us and started eating the mouse it had caught. It was amazing to see but just not the best in front of the kids. An enjoyable hike, with plenty of standing water for the kids to splash in. Haha
