Exotic Hikes is reporting from Mount Ellinor.
This project is to produce a set of 24 trading cards of historical people from the Greater Olympia area. Basically, I wanted to know who Percival was, and what did Edmund Sylvester do that was so great we named a park after him? Naturally, I decided the most efficacious way to do this was to create a massive multi-part project.
Help Rick decide who should be on the cards.
Dave believes that the Northwest has become and will continue to be a leading North American cider region.
Sounds good to me.
The Olympia Downtown Ambassador Program received a Special Recognition from the Olympia City Council at their meeting on Tuesday, October 16th 2012.
Great success for Downtown. Let’s keep it going, well-funded and recognized as a new idea and program for Olympia that actually, and really works.
Are you interested in making a difference in Thurston County? Do you want to see healthier families in the South Sound area? Do you want your family to be healthier?
If you answered yes to any of the above, please join FLT Consulting, Inc. and Joe Justice of Team WIKISPEED for the first Social Good Weekend focusing on creating healthy and fit families in Thurston County. We will provide hands-on training to help turn your good ideas into great results.
Bring your ideas and lead a team or join a team to help make Thurston County healthy and fit.
Oils and lubricants that have been dripping from vehicles all summer long have accumulated on the surface, and for the most part have gone unnoticed in the dry weather. Once it starts to rain those substances will be released and spread across the roadway surface, causing reduced traction.
The City of Olympia tries new audible crosswalk helpers and installed them at my intersection on State and Washington and other intersections close to the transit station. They are meant to beep all day long! Yes, all, f^*&&ing day long! The beeping is not supposed alert blind people that they ‘can’ cross, but direct them to where the buttons are installed. Contrary to any other audible crosswalk helpers I ever encountered. When the button is actually pressed a electronic voice guides people to wait or cross on the specific street.
This means there is a loud, annoying, ongoing beep 24 hours a day.
Talk about noise pollution in downtown. Can you imagine if people would actually live in this downtown? It would drive people crazy. I just sit in my studio 10 hours a day, right next to the intersection and if it gets unbearable can move my office out of downtown.
Who makes those kind of decision?
This weekend, just in time for Arts Walk.
Go, check it out. Looks like an awesome new shop for downtown Olympia.
Friday, October 5th at 6:00pm, we will be mobbing the Make Olympia Market at the Artesian Well!! It doesn’t get more local than this for Fall Artswalk, everything is handmade locally and you can meet and talk to the artists personally! There is breads and pastries, clothing & accessories, soaps, jewelry, home decor, children’s items, scarves, photography and more!
Sometime this weekend all of their equipment was stolen. Please keep your eyes and ears open for any leads.
You’re welcome Olympia.
We urgently need volunteers to help:

Saturday, September 29th
Gather at the alley off Capital Way between 4th & State

Due to unfortunate circumstances, only a handful of volunteers were recruited to help with this much needed clean-up of our downtown. The Downtown Ambassadors and Clean Team have decided to step up to lead the charge!
Volunteers are needed for the following:
· Painting over graffiti
· Picking up garbage
· Pulling weeds
If you can help, please rsvp to Rob Richards @ 360.292.0565 as soon as possible.
Olympic National Forest’s Mount Ellinor Trail will reopen on October 1, ending the formal closure that was implemented three months ago when several hiking parties reported being harassed by insistent mountain goats. The animals approached hikers at very close proximities and then failed to retreat when attempts were made to chase them away.
Hey ExoticHikes, when are we going?
