The sun sets behind the hills across from Rainbow Falls where we set up camp for the night.

It was a very spacious and lush campsite with pine and fir trees and a cool and clean river rushing through it..

After a pretty cold night of camping we packed up our tents which were nestled in a small grove and we were back on the road again.

Pransukh enjoying the warmer weather as the sun came out in the morning.

Salil puts in his miles with some challenging hills.

Arpan runs into Centralia where we were greeted by two photographers from the local newspaper.

One of the reporters from the local newspaper making a wish for peace and offering her goodwill.

While they were waiting for the runner to arrive they take a few moments to share the Peace Torch to make a wish for peace and have a few photo-ops with each other.

While running on the road we sometimes encounter a few wild but beautiful animals.

When we reached Tacoma we went to the weekly Farmer's Market to meet with the Mayor of Tacoma.

Salil passes the Peace Torch to Mayor Victoria Woodards of Tacoma.

Mayor Woodards was so happy to meet our international team.

We present the Mayor with our Certificate of Appreciation. We are so grateful that she and her assistants came out here to meet us and share with us some of her words of wisdom.

Egi runs with Harita in one of her last runs before having to go back home soon. We will miss her selfless oneness as part of the women's team since Oklahoma City a month ago.

Virangini, our fearless driver for the women's team, is enjoying the northwest coast but had to leave us soon also.

We finally made it to the big and beautiful city of Seattle situated along Puget Sound.

We were generously treated to a fantastic dinner at the Sunlight Cafe by our friends here in Seattle. Now we are just over halfway on our run around the U.S. and parts of Canada, It is a real blessing to have so many friends in this part of North America to offer such energizing encouragement and support. We are also very grateful to those who have contributed in many ways to help us get to this point in this long and successful peace journey so far.
