A couple of years ago around this time, I started a project called my Year of Trees. I took a picture of the same street every week for a year, noting the changes to the trees that line that road. I really enjoyed it and a number of my readers did too, so I decided to reprise it. But I wanted to focus on a different area. So I decided to go to Marymoor Park, a large park in the area with a number of vantage points. I found two that struck me–so each week (unless I’m sick or other major factors intervene) I will be posting pictures of those two places, taken from the same vantage point. I invite you to come along on my year-long journey with me.

Week 11: It’s been downright chilly lately and rainy, and so many of the trees are bare. Finally, the Marymoor big tree is showing it’s branches to us. Thanksgiving is this week, and it’s hard to believe I’ve already done 11 weeks of this new project.

    Just thought I’d share – as this happened over the weekend and was thinking of your “Year of Trees” walking into work today…

    There’s a particular tree I walk by ever day from the parking lot to my campus office. I don’t know what type of tree it is – but it has a very unusual de-leafing persona. As the weather cools the leaves will change from dark green over to yellow, a few will fall from the branches here and there, but stays fairly full. Once we have a significant frost (below 32 degrees F) for a couple mornings – all the leaves fall off over night – creating a lovely, if slippery, pile of fresh autumn leaves to walk through.
