Centuries on Foot: Washington’s Historic Trails with Judy Bentley

September 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Ancient trails, some thousands of years old, are still close to the surface in Washington State. Follow seasoned travelers from Cape Flattery and Puget Sound across Cascade Mountain passes, through inland plateaus, into the Kettle Range in the north and the Blue Mountains in the south and back along the Columbia River to Cape Disappointment, with author Judy Bentley.

The second edition of Hiking Washington’s History, co-authored with Craig Romano, traces 44 historic trails walked by native people, explorers, military expeditions, homesteaders, railroads, miners, sheepherders, road builders, fire lookouts, and more. Bentley will trace the history of trails and sample a few footprints across Washington’s spectacular terrain.

Judy Bentley taught English and Pacific Northwest History at South Seattle College for many years and has written more than 17 books, including guidebooks to state history.
