I’m leaving soon. I love Seattle quite a bit. I decided to go on a bike ride to see some favorite spots and vistas. It was a good ride. Check it out!
Capitol Hill is both a great and a horrible neighborhood. It’s on a hill, so everywhere you are heading is downhill to start, but always uphill when you head back home. It’s great, though, because you are treated to vistas anywhere and everywhere you look.
Interlaken park is one of those places that you stumble upon and can’t help but be like, “woah . . . where am I?”. Being able to get away from the city, while in the city, is a wonderful thing.
Seattle’s got some great hidden routes if you know where to find ‘em. Over the years I’ve enjoyed hunting down all the steepest, cobble-iest, and gravel-iest ones there are. When you’re locked into a city, getting some dirt under your tires can be a life-saver.
After Interlaken it was off to the Arboretum. The Arboretum is like Lithia Park. That’s really the only way I know how to even get close to actually describing it. It’s that cool.
It’s crazy how things sneak up on ya. I’ve been trying to cram as much into my last couple weeks here as possible, but as the countdown really starts to get towards moving day, there are more and more places and things I realize I want to see and do. Ho-hum. Looks like I’ll have to come back and visit.
