Washington Park Arboretum — Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019

Puget Sound and Islands
Skiing Azalea Way

Snow in Seattle is a blessing and a b*tch. Luckily I live near the Washington Arboretum.

Having just received 6+ inches we headed out early on cross country skis. Heavy, wet snow draped the branches of eucalyptus trees and other exotics. The snow muffled sounds, it was a beautiful time.

Lake Washington, at the north end of the arboretum, was grey and choppy with a northern wind. Few birds were visible but chirps of chickadees and others were present.

As we returned towards home after our 5 mile loop more and more families entered the park. Trails were full of dogs, children in sleds, and laughing families. It was a grand day.
