#30DaysofScootering: Another Beautiful Day
It's another beautiful spring day and I get out for both morning and evening scooter trips.
On my morning trip I head south and stop to take yet another yard art picture.
There's a park whose name I don't know being built south of town. Gravel paths lead down to the creek.
The paths aren't scooterable, but I walk around exploring.
The Issaquah-Hobart Road is clogged with traffic in the early morning and by travelling south, I've gained some elevation. When I turn back north, I kick and coast faster than the car commuters coming into town.
In the evening, I roll north to the State Park at Lake Sammamish.
A few families are having picnics and some folks are fishing, but the trails are still mostly empty.
I go home via the big pedestrian bridge over I-90 and stop to check out the Maple Street Pond.
The heron is there.
And so is the big goose.
And my friend the solo mallard.
I scooter on toward home.
Six miles of scooter riding this morning and 5.4 miles this evening.
Keep 'em rolling,
