Dispatches from the Field: Seattle Edition, April 2017

After four straight weekends of scrambles in the Rockies, we didn't get out for a hike this past weekend. I was getting the shakes from summit withdrawal...

So rather than post more photos from our recent mountain adventures, here are another selection from our trip to Seattle over the Easter long weekend. Oysters, beer, oysters, scenic views, more oysters, graffiti, and Lenin. A very short, but very fun getaway.

  1. Oh Seattle, the city that contains thousands of acres of parkland, the city surrounded by water, mountains and forests. Thanks for sharing the adventurous yet mouthwatering oyster adventure.
