Local high schooler Wallis Boram has compiled 'A Poet's Guide to Trails', an original piece of work featuring poems highlighting five of Washington's trails. Written as a senior project for Seattle's Bush School, the book is a guide for anyone who wants to explore the outdoors and capture its beauty through poetry, or simply meditate on nature.

Supplemented with quotes from poets like Mary Oliver, Gary Snyder, and Li Po, the book is a delightful dip into the beauty that waits just outside our doors.

In the introduction, Wallis encourages readers to "...think creatively, independently, and boundlessly in ways that push you towards new levels of self and earthly exploration." So take a look at 'A Poet's Guide to Trails', then see what you discover next time you step on trail.
