Ship Canal Trail Pics, a set on Flickr.

I took the long way in today, and had a great ride. I had to stop along the way often, as the sky and scenes were beautiful. I feel incredibly lucky to live in this town. I am also very lucky to have the opportunity to commute by bicycle. Not everyone has the health or lifestyle to make it work (although you can make anything work if you try!). This trail is not well-used (yet), and I am hoping to see more folks on it in the coming years, but I’ll enjoy the solitude while I have it.
