A Late Summer Walk in Seattle’s Washington Park Arboretum

September 8, 2012

Giant tree in the morning light

Sometimes I crave a walk amidst tall trees, and I’m fortunate that Seattle’s Washington Park Arboretum is not too far from my home.  The giant trees give long shadows, and it’s cool there even on warm sunny days.  Here are some photos from my latest visit:
