Pike’s Place in Seattle

Pike’s Place in Seattle had a lot going on. There is the known tossing of the salmon but I didn’t know about all of the others foods that were there. You can even find the original Starbucks there but go early as that line is pretty long later in the day.

I used a X-Pro2

They had  a variety of crab and even whole Dungeness crab that they can pack and ship home for you.

Bike by Brick

The town of Ashland in Virginia is a small town that is about 20 minutes north of Richmond. The train tracks go right down the middle of the town and they are pretty active. Freight and passenger cars go right through, although there is plans to make an alternate route around town for more high speed trains. People are oppose to it as it will cut into peoples lands and farms. As the sun was setting I came across this bike sitting next to this wall. It was part of the UCI Bike Championship displays.

Mt. Hood

I didn’t get a chance to hike on Mt. Hood but we did get to drive around it. The landscape out there is amazing and I already miss it. Tall straight trees like the cedars and fir’s is a change of scenery from the oaks and other hard woods back on the east. These volcanoes rise well above most of the other mountains in the area, covered with snow. Get out there when you can!
