Later in the evening I went to a book reading/signing by Heather Lende. Several years ago when I was visiting Sarah she suggested I read, "If You Lived Here I Would Know Your Name". It is a great book about living in a small town in Alaska. Heather Lende has just come out with a new book, "Take Good Care of the Garden and the Dogs". She was a great speaker and I am now the proud owner of an autographed copy of her latest book. I highly recommend her first book and will let you know on the second one!!!

The Flume Trail
After working out, Karen (new trainer) and I went on a walk on Flume Trail. I had to do some research to see what they meant by a flume. Apparently it is a wooden trestle that used to bring water to the town. We started at Evergreen Cemetery and walked through the cemetery and up a very steep staircase (99 steps!) to get to the start of the trail. The picture is looking back down after I got to the top:) It was beautiful along the trail and a really easy walk. Part of it is more like walking on a boardwalk. After reaching the flume and the end of the trail, we headed back to my car through Juneau. The more I walk around Juneau the more shortcuts and stairs connecting different streets I come across. It is kind of fun to see where they all go.
