This March, I took a trip to Seattle and traveled into the mountains east of the "Emerald City". I did not venture into museums or galleries this trip but I did enjoy the outdoors. I have included here several views from this journey.
Above is a hill at Gas Works Park. The park is situated, not far from the University of Washington, at the edge of Lake Union . Below are two other views of the park.
Having grown up in Pennsylvania, I am continually amazed at the shift in landscape as one travels from Seattle east. One gets to see water, snow covered mountains, and then desert all in a three hour drive.
Above is a mountain found in the Wenatchee National Forest not far from Leavenworth, WA. On the return flight, back to Philadelphia, I was lucky to get a good view of Minneapolis and captured the image seen below. (Click on the image for a larger view.)
