Sunday Photo(s)

A week or so ago, I visited Carkeek Park in northwest Seattle. This is a large park that includes both a lot of nature trails and forested areas, and a beach on the seaward side of a railroad track.

One of the routes to the beach goes over this boardwalk:

Then over this foot bridge that spans the tracks:

This is the view south, toward downtown Seattle and Elliot Bay:

And this is the view north, toward Lynnwood:

The tracks are raised, of course, to keep them above the tidewater. Here's the northbound track just north of the foot bridge:

Since it was late afternoon, several local commuter trains passed by, all headed out of Seattle:

And finally, an Amtrak train went by, also headed north:

As always, click on the photos to enlarge. Have a good Sunday.

Was anybody fishing?

I don't recall seeing anyone. That part of Puget Sound is so noisy, between the boats, trains, and children, that I suspect fishing would be an exercise in futility.

Thanks Cujo.
