Washington

This collection is from all over Washington State. I don't actually have any of Seattle because every time I went into the city I had some important business. I lived in an apartment in the suburb of Bothell and that is where most of the pictures are taken.

Flowers

See some pictures of flowers that were taken at the Mt. Adams lodge in July 2010. All the pictures were taken on the same day in about 20 acres of land. click here.

The Sammamish River trail goes from Redmond to Bothell where it joins the Burke-Gilman Trail to go into Seattle. By car it would be quicker drive on the floating bridge using Rt. 520.

Here is a patch of protected wetlands where students from the college do swamp science. This is right next to Interstate 405 so it is not nearly as tranquil as it looks.

The Cascades keep Pacific moisture on the Seattle side of the state. Interstate 90 runs across the range and can be quite dangerous.

The Hood River Bridge does not cross the Hood River.  It crosses the Columbia River from the town of White Salmon, Wash. to the town of Hood River, Ore.  The Hood River flows through the town of Hood River and starts at Mt Hood in Oregon.  The bridge is entirely metal and cars drive on a grate so it makes a funny noise and you can see directly below you.  It cost .75 cents to cross the bridge.
