We used WAYNITA and NOT Juanita! Obviously, the naming was someone's idea of a joke. You wind up on 100th which is a trafficky arterial until the wetland. Then after the wetland boardwalk, we turned right and hit some parkland with a nice trail system that I'd never been on before.

I am trying to remember to call King Cty and ask about Juanita.
Replying to myself - I called King Cty. They would not tell me anything about Juanita Way!

80-spot. a little toasty inland so kept it seabreeze/baybreeze as much as possible.
no way in hades i'll be able to repeat the route during the labor day weekend that is coupled
with a substantial heatwave unless going < 10 mph or risking life and limb more than usual.

64 miles and 4,100 feet, not my best due to a foot issue (fractured it in June) and some knee pain. I have a century next week with a little more elevation.
