Where's Sara? - Poo Poo Point

  • Written by Sara Graham

There is no poo pooing the hike to Poo Poo Point on Tiger Mountain in Issaquah no matter which direction you hike it.  If you are looking for a legit hike close to Woodinville that the whole family can enjoy, then Poo Poo Point is just the ticket.

There are two trail heads you can start from, both located off exit 17 on I-90 just a 30 minute drive from the Woodinville Park and Ride.  The first trail head starts at Issaquah High School. It is a 7.2  mile round trip to the north landing area of Poo Poo Point.  The other trail head is the Chirico Trail which starts 3 miles past the high school, off Issaquah-Hobart road. It is 3.8 miles round trip.  Both are challenging – the high school route is longer but the Chirico Trail is steeper.

Emerald Ballet Theatre presents Coppélia with Woodinville dancers

  • Written by David B. Clark

While ballet’s beauty has long stood in the popular eye as a construct of grace and femininity, strength often times slips away from the casual viewer’s notice. Emerald Ballet Theatre (EBT) is thrilled to present Coppélia, a performance focused on two lovers and an elusive figure that comes between them. Taking the lead will be two of the city’s top dancers, Mckenzie Wilson and Ryan Hong; both of Woodinville. While the ballet is quintessential romance, its eccentricities like dancing dolls and a zealous toymaker give the show a quality reminiscent of Shakespeare’s, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
