Show Notes

Judy Bentley takes listeners through hiking Washington's history and reveals the stories behind Washington’s landscape, from Cape Flattery to Cascade Pass, from the Blue Mountains to Cape Disappointment.  We discuss trails as old as 7000 years cross the Cascades.  Hikers may climb to mountain lookouts and follow wagon roads, rail-trails, and expeditions through the Olympic Mountains.

Judy Bentley writes books about history, hiking, biography, and current issues for both adults and young adults. She grew up in Indiana, went to college in Ohio, and lived in New York City before moving to Seattle where she has retired from teaching at South Seattle College.  The second edition of Hiking Washington's History was published by the University of Washington Press with co-author Craig Romano. Walking Washington's History: Ten Cities, published in 2016, is an urban counterpart to Hiking Washington's History. Both books guide hikers and walkers on historically significant routes in Washington State history.
