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 17: Hello and Happy New Year! We are headed into an Arctic cold snap here, and tonight it’s going to be in the mid-20’s, and then dip into the teens during the nights this week. We woke up to snow here, though down in Redmond where I take the pictures at Marymoor they only have a thick layer of frost. Posting bonus pictures today of our yard this morning. The difference a couple hundred feet in elevation makes can be quite a bit around here. And the snow we get here is often called “Seattle cement”–wet, gloppy, and subject to re-freezing and turning into crusty, thick frozen slush.
