A Run in the Washington Arboretum

In between bouts of work, I took some time today to visit the Mt. Baker area where my next book is being set. Beautiful area, and yes, I could see Rainier rising majestically over Seward Park.

I also found the Washington Arboretum in the process. Since a run was penciled in, I headed there. The dogwoods were blooming, along with trees that I didn't identify. Nicely maintained trails and occasional single track for the adventurous.

 Pretty enough to slow me down to take a picture

 When in doubt, grab the single track.  . .
