**This is an in-person event at The Mountaineers Tacoma Program Center. Masks are recommended. Attendees must abide by The Mountaineers COVID Code of Conduct and follow current Mountaineers COVID-19 Response guidelines.**

Presentation will begin at 7pm and conclude at 8pm. Afterward, participants may want to stay to purchase books and have them signed by the authors.

When we walk on our state's footpaths and marvel at the scenery, or when we come upon an old homestead or mine in the forest, we pause to think about the people who have called these places home. Pacific Northwest historian and hiker Judy Bentley, and guidebook author and trail runner Craig Romano, wrote Hiking Washington's History (University of Washington Press) to retrace these traditional routes. In a slideshow and lecture, Bentley and Romano give us the stories behind the trails.
