Surprise Visitors at Coulon Park – Snowbirds!

This week at Coulon Park I found two visitors among the Canada Geese. I believe they’re Snow Geese, perhaps blown off course while heading south for the winter. Or maybe they decided to relocate to Renton where temperatures are (relatively) mild year-round. I’d never… Continue Reading “Surprise Visitors at Coulon Park – Snowbirds!”

Bogged Down in Squares at Shadow Lake Bog

Not too far from our home in Renton is an ancient bog, surrounded by forest, carpeted with moss and decorated with magic mushrooms. The trail and boardwalk through the bog is short but marvelous so I thought it would be perfect for this week’s… Continue Reading “Bogged Down in Squares at Shadow Lake Bog”

On the Street Where I Live

Some days I don’t feel like walking far; I just need some fresh air and beauty. Thankfully, there’s a park at the end of my street full of color. ~ Susanne

Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon

I love to walk at Coulon Park and no matter the season, I’m always joined by the stony walkers. Here they are on a sunny day, without a stitch on, but here they dressed for Valentine’s Day. Here they are on Memorial Day, and… Continue Reading “Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon”

Golden Gingko

I first discovered the Gingko Biloba tree a few years ago when I was walking on the Cedar River Trail. Since then I try to visit each fall to catch it in its golden finest. Today was the day! 🙂 ~ Susanne

The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!

One of my favorite things about living in Renton is seeing the salmon return to the Cedar River each fall. After spending several years in the Pacific Ocean they return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn. Coho, Chinook and Sockeye… Continue Reading “The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!”

All Dressed up at Coulon Park!

On my weekend walk at Coulon Park I found the stony walkers all dressed up for Labor Day in honor of our essential workers. Here’s what they wore on Memorial Day in case you wondered. The maple trees have also started changing into their… Continue Reading “All Dressed up at Coulon Park!”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the stony walkers at Coulon Park! ~ Susanne

Back for a Walk at Coulon Park

After two months of being closed, I was thrilled when Gene Coulon Memorial Park opened last week, allowing us to resume our walks on the shores of Lake Washington.  Always popular but not overcrowded, it’s a perfect place to walk anytime of year, with… Continue Reading “Back for a Walk at Coulon Park”
