#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,

Interesting fact about that park they're building south of Issaquah. 100% of that trail system is being put in by boys working on their Eagle Scout projects. My son's project was 150 feet of that meandering trail. It's a great way for the city to get something completed, at minimal cost.
