View from the Pike Place Market

Yesterday, on a Chamber of Commerce weather day, we took our two grandkids to the Pike Place Market to have lunch and to check out the refurbed section of the Market. We traveled by bus from West Seattle; I have to insert that I think comparing NYC Subways and Seattle Metro buses is likely close to happening).

Highlights of the images ( which are all  shot on my iPhone, with the aid of a detachable lens  are: The Wheel, Mt. Rainier, Elliott Bay, Alki Point in West Seattle and the soon-to-become extinct Viaduct/SR99.

One of the highlights of the outing was viewing and contributing to the new Gum Wall!

Anyway, the foray into downtown Seattle for a few of hours was about all my broken down body could endure. The current Seattle agency in charge of tourism promotion of the city seemed to be doing a bang up job as the Market was jam packed, even for a Tuesday!

Along the Interurban Trail-#?

 

This first image was taken nearly at the end of the Interurban Trail. The center of the photo ( the vanishing point?) is the end. 

Tim’s Cascade Crunch factory, famous for those thick, teeth-breaking potato chips. Another view of Mt. Rainier and a shot of a cow viewing me.

 

A Different View of Mt. Rainier

This view is from the Kent Valley, south of Seattle.

Mt. Rainier

Monday Flora

Taken in a meadow, elevation about 6,600 feet, on the Sunrise side of Mt. Rainier.

Sunrise Hike

Just a few of the things we saw as we walked up to the Huckleberry Trail on the Sunrise side of Mt. Rainier. The moss just hung like long strands of hair. The deer just walked out of the brush and onto the trail, coming within 15 feet of me. 

Sunrise

Photos were taken from the Sunrise side of Mt. Rainier. The lodge is at @ 6400′ elevation. Trails that lead up to the glaciers, alpine lakes and other ridges start from this lodge. This day we took a short trail called Huckleberry, steep, but short. The outcropping of rock is fascinating. There are spots along the trail, viewpoints I guess, where the drop-off is a direct fall for hundreds of feet. I have a thing about heights so I stay back from the edge at those points along the trail.

Fog, Frost and Mountain
