My friend Justin and I arrived early on Saturday in the rain - the rain stopped right after we got our tents up, allowing us one glorious day to explore unmarked trails up Rampart Ridge. Then, that night, a gnarly storm rolled through. Of that, I have no pictures, so shots of Rampart Lakes, Rampart Ridge, and Lila Lake must suffice.
Danny and I occasionally plan walks through interesting parts of the city. Today, it was breakfast followed by wandering through the Washington Arboretum, which I'd never really explored. With this year's more bountiful precipitation, the fall colors are on full display with the sun out once again.
My wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary by getting out of the city for a weekend and going to Langley on Whidbey Island. It was lovely; we ate delicious food and stayed in a quaint cabin. Our excitement came from a ferry that sprung a leak, caught fire, and required our evacuation.
My company sent my team along with one other on a quick sailing cruise around Elliott Bay. It was beautiful, of course, and a nice escape from work.
My good friend, Danny, and I walked around UW's campus and snapped a few frames. Check out what he did!
I just wanted one blossom photo this year. Most trees were already bare, but I did find this beauty (as did everyone else with a camera, it seemed).
