I make a point of visiting Seattle often since one of my closest friends moved there. In September 2013 we rented a car to Yakima, WA. It was roughly 3 hours from the city. We had nothing on the agenda except to stop the car when and where we wanted, packing heat (3 cameras between the 2 of us for the afternoon). We walked the 'Petrified Forest' trail and stopped at various look out points. There's much more I would have liked to photograph on this road trip but I definitely enjoyed the rest without looking at it through a lens.
The last two frames are from my meandering on the docks below Pike Market on a separate day in Seattle.
