I posted about hiking earlier and during my lunch I decided it was too nice a day not to go outside and enjoy the weather. Yes, I know a lot of people don't like our current temperatures but I find 30F to be very refreshing and the sun was shining. I had a great time during the walk though I had a couple of problems with trails vanishing on me. My office is part of a complex located in the Mercer Slough. That's a fancy name for saying I work in a cold-water swamp. They have built trails and recently they were given a bit of maintenance and are quite walkable. Mostly.

If the map shows up below, you can see how I started at the green dot and walked south then west a bit. The reason is that the trail ended where the maintenance stopped. You can see some photos I took on my Flickr.

I'd always thought a slough was a backwoods synonym for swamp: I didn't realize there was a definitional difference. Woo for learning new things!

That's what slough meant, I thought. Looking at definitions online say it means a depression or hollow, usually filled with deep mud or mire.
