As Tom Reese writes in the article, that the park really is an amazing natural area in the midst of such an urban setting. My favorite juxtaposition is the 520 freeway overpass system that sweeps over the water. The fact that there is a beaver lodge in middle of it all and visible from the freeway is truly a bit of wildness that always surprises me.
After my Montlake open house had ended for the day, I decided to walk around the Montlake Waterfront Park , to relax and take some photos. It was the last in a series of sunny days that we have been having recently and even though it was later in the day, there were people out kayaking and walking on the trails, the bridges and relaxing on the decks.
The park is a great place to get away and in such a close in location. One more wonderful reason to enjoy living in Seattle!
