Return of the Salmon

It happens every year in the Pacific Northwest. Salmon return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn.  Three main species of salmon return to the Cedar River in Renton:  the Sockeye, Chinook and Coho.  The Sockeye is the most abundant and…

Annual Coulon Color

I couldn’t resist dropping by Gene Coulon Park today to see the trees transformed into their fall glory. It never gets old. ~ Susanne

Walking into Fall at Coulon Park

September has been slow to relinquish summer and that’s fine with me.  I’m enjoying the lingering sun and slow transformation of the leaves even as the days grow shorter. A slow walk into Fall at Coulon Park. ~ Susanne

More Turtles of Coulon

The weather was nicer this week than expected so I headed to Coulon Park to walk the trail along the shores of Lake Washington. I wasn’t the only one out. It was a real log jam. ~ Susanne

A Library – and a River Runs through it

I visited the Library in Renton and this boy greeted me near the door. As did this river – the Cedar. Inside I made a few selections. Then went outside to walk the trail,  capturing these shots of the Library. Because yes indeed.  A…

Rainy Day Walk and the B-17

Rain, rain and more rain was the forecast for the week, along with wind and stormy weather for the weekend.  So we weren’t surprised to wake up to heavy,  pounding rain this morning.   Did we dare go out for our walk?  We headed…

Winter Walk at Coulon Park

It hardly seems fair to call it a winter day, not with temperatures in the 50’s and the sky as blue as the lake below. And though the calendar does indeed say it’s winter I put on my lighter jacket and we headed to…

March comes in on a Whisper

There’s no lion today;  March has come to the Pacific Northwest with barely a whisper and blue skies.  We take advantage of the milder temperatures with a walk on the Cedar River Trail. We see bursts of color in the trees and shrubs… As…

Shadow Lake Bog: Out of this World

Earlier this winter we visited the nearby Shadow Lake Nature Preserve and its ancient sphagnum moss peat bog where it seemed that creatures might emerge from the swamp and prehistoric birds could soar overhead. And so for this week’s photo challenge I bring you…

The Last Tree

After the razing of the 22 acres formerly known as the Tiffany Park Woods, it was time to take out the last tree near our home.  No hard feelings.  In fact,  I’m over it.  For the last several months I’ve actually enjoyed following the…

A Walk on the Cedar River Trail

What a difference a day makes!  This morning brought brief snow flurries to the region (the earliest I can remember) but yesterday was mild with only light rain. I’m happy we took our walk on the Cedar River Trail yesterday. The Trail follows the…

Colors of Coulon

I finally made it to Gene Coulon Park today to see the display of fall color under sunshine and clear skies. Just in time. Rain and wind forecasted for the rest of the week. ~ Susanne
