How far will your hiking take you in 2010? WTA asked our readers, web- site visitors and fans on social media to share their goals with us.
I’m going to walk to the top of a mountain, preferably McGregor, in recognition of the fact that it will be one of my last summers being 40-something.

My hiking resolution is to continue into 2010 what I started in 2009: hike at least twice a month, no matter the weather, and keep my hiking meetup group running strong for those of us who aren’t hard-core marathon hikers.

I have joined the Y in order to get and stay in shape well before our peak hiking opportunities in the summer. I resolve to stick with staying in shape in 2010 for bet- ter hiking times.

Hike to Scatter Lake again, but spend two days at the top. One was not enough.

1) Take my mom on her first backpack- ing trip this summer. 2) Go on at least 3 overnights and one multi-night. 3) Go on at least five hikes I’ve never done in the Cas- cades. 4) Do a coast/beach overnight.
At least one overnight backpack trip in 2010. I’ve been wanting to do it for years but have only been out day hiking or car camping.
In 2010, I resolve to have hiked all the wild, roadless areas of northeast Wash- ington that are close to finally obtaining protection under the Wilderness Act...IF we speak up for them.
Train more. With weight. Uphill. WAY uphill.
Rock the Oyster Dome with no stops!
Continue hiking or walking to continue los- ing weight and get into shape, but also to see the wonderful and amazing sights that are on these trails that take your breathe away. Washington is a beautiful state!
Rachel Zamora Phillipps
In 2008, I said 100 Washington state hikes in ten years!
Camp at least one night at Snow Lake. Climb the fire tower on Mount Pilchuck. Go on at least one overnight hike with my soon-to-be-four-year-old son, and take my soon-to-be-born baby daughter to the top of Lord Hill at least once.
Take as many friends and family members hiking as I can, and try to do two to three hikes every month.
Hike the PCT, one county at a time!
To spend more time prowling around the new Wild Sky Wilderness and the not-so- new Pasayten Wilderness.
Most of these resolutions came from our Facebook fan base. Are you on Facebook? Become a Fan of WTA.
