I drove out to Carkeek* Park on the northern outskirts of the Seattle metropolitan area this Sunday afternoon to enjoy some of the sunny weather. The Park is big .. 216 acres, and offers hiking trails and playgrounds in addition to the strip of pebbles and rough along Puget Sound. I waited for a train to come by, and my patience was rewarded : a Burlington North-Santa Fe oil train came along. I counted about 110 cars on the train!
*named after an English building contractor who came to Seattle in 1875.
