#30DaysofScooting: Soggy Scoot to Sammamish State Park
It was damp and drizzling this morning, but as is often the case here, the rain wasn't heavy, more of a light, intermittent misting. I set out on my scooter for Sammamish State Park. The paths were damp but my tires & shoes are sufficiently grippy handle the conditions with ease.
The park has various signs explaining the history and ecology of the area.
Slugs love the soggy spring weather.
On sunny days, it's a lot more crowded here.
The birds don't mind the damp.
Obviously illiterate or scofflaw birds.
The view north.
I scoot on the paved paths and hike in the places where I can't scoot.
My pals on Twitter identified these birds as Chinese Swan Geese.
I hiked the trails to the north end of the park where they are constructing a new parking area at the boat launch.
I scooted back home along the bumpy sidewalk, happy to see the progress being made on the paving of the rail trail. It looks like they should be done soon,
About five miles of scooting this morning and a couple of miles of hiking.
Keep 'em rolling,
