A Gnome Hunting We Will Go

In the morning we got the opportunity to take a “gnome hunt” walk at the Evans Creek Preserve. Our son, Brad, spends numerous hours helping build the trail system and bridges at Evans Creek, so it's one of our favorite places to walk.

One of the attractions of Evans Creek is the gnomes, small replicas that are hidden here and there by local hikers for the kids to find. The rule is when you find a gnome, you have to "re hide" it somewhere else.

Unfortunately the gnome hunts were recently officially banned by the Sammamish City Council as being “too damaging to the environment.”  Too bad, but I have a feeling they will be back.

The competition was intense to see who would find the first gnome.
Ah, there's one.
Looks like a leprechaun.
The famous "hanging gnome."
