Hit the trails

Outdoors writer and photographer Craig Romano will be in Olympia on Feb. 20 to talk about his favorite winter hikes and offer a look at his "Winter Hikes of Western Washington Deck" from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Olympia Timberland Regional Library, 313 Eighth Ave. S.E., Olympia.

Described by Mountaineers Books as “a portable way to hit the winter trails,” the deck features 60 cards with route descriptions and maps. The deck includes 13 hikes that haven’t been published before. Hikes range from lowland routes and rainforest rambles to coastal tramps and protected peaks. They vary in length and difficulty and include destinations for families with young children and pets. Romano, who lives in Mount Vernon, is the author of “Day Hiking: Central Cascades,” “Day Hiking: North Cascades,” “Best Hikes with Dogs Inland Northwest” and other titles.
