Lake Slimy Egg

Back to my favorite nearly private lake.  I've been trying to walk 10K a day everyday.  I don't know if that is a realistic goal, but so far so good.  Last year I lost ten pounds while training for Mount Adams, this year I gained 7 of those pounds back and to my horror they landed on my belly.

Turns out it's a change of life thing.  Anyway I have a new goal to lose ten pound this year as well.  I want to get this done by my 50th birthday.  Luckily that means I only have to lose one pound a week.

Walking on a level surface burns 100 calories per hour.  Walking ten K or 6.3 miles per day burns 600 calories.  I think the scale is starting to move, but not sure.

The road to this hike is in terrible shape due to logging.  Logging really tears up dirt roads.  I took a different road out.  The drive out was longer, but it was probabably faster and for sure easier on my car.

I spend about two hours at the Lake with Sage, just relaxing and taking pictures and checking facebook from time to time.  I cuaght two pokemon on this hike, that was all that spawned.

8.5 miles 300 feet elevation gain on the winter route.

Toxic Goose Lake in Shelton, don't go there!
