Early Spring Ride: A Photoessay

Early Spring Ride - Atlantis in Madison Park closeup

Atlantis in Madison Park

On a particularly warm and sunny day in early April I took a meandering ride along Lake Washington. Riding through parks along the water and then I skirted the University of Washington along the Union Bay Natural Area the wildlife was out in force. I concluded at Magnuson Park where I made coffee and hung out in a little nook next to the Community Garden. Here are a few photos from this beautiful early spring day.
