Walk and Talk - Ponder While You Wander

Sarah Gallagher

What do Cougar Mountain, Mt. Si, the Burke-Gilman Trail, and the 520 Bridge all have in common? You!

Spend your week exploring the beauty of the outdoors in the greater Seattle-area. Go for a walk, talk to your friends, and get some exercise while you take a break from classes.

  • Mosey up Cougar Mountain to Poo Poo Point for some spectacular views and then craft your own fro-yo bowl in town.
  • Trek up Mt. Si to see some of the best scenes of the Cascades and then savor the famous pie of the North Bend Café.
  • Walk across the 520 bridge into the Japanese gardens of Lake Washington Arboretum then enjoy lunch at the amazing Café Flora.
  • Travel the Burke-Gilman trail as it takes you to the University of Washington and on to University Village where Shake Shack awaits, and much more.
  • Closeout the week with a Mystery Walk, followed by delicious food, of course.
Special Considerations

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  If a participant, experiences any overlapping CDC symptoms of COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with student pick-up. CDC's possible symptoms of COVID can be found here.

By selecting the above project(s,) you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
