Here is a sign I encountered on my lunch break hike today. It explains how the area was replanted in the 80s to restore the natural habitat. Between yesterday and today I've hiked the perimeter of the island where my office is located. I should start packing my lunch and finding other trails close by to hike. I know there are quite a few more in Mercer Slough that I haven't covered yet. I bet there are more around Bellevue too.

MyTracks is a great app that logs my hikes and provides some basic information such as average speed, total time, altitude gain and distance covered. The problem is I'm pretty positive I didn't walk through the water and I'm not 23 meters below sea level! Not that I really need much accuracy for this application.

Health note: Today I wore my hiking boots and my feel feel much better than they did after yesterdays hike. My ankles are still an issue but it's not so bad I can't keep going.

I've no idea if this would meet your needs better but my friend [livejournal.com profile] ziz works for mapmyride.com and mapmyrun.com, and a lot of my other friends use those for handling mapping and particularly elevation stuff as they've a neat slope display.

Thanks, I'll check those out. I think the main feature I'm going to use from MyTracks is the summary log which tracks when, how long and how fast I hike. Playing with maps is fun, but it isn't my focus.

This is neat. I like it when they restore areas like this as best they can. The more wilderness where we can see it and be reminded how great it is, the better.
