Interurban North.

I had some time this afternoon to give the Interurban Trail north of Shoreline a try.

There was some riding along side streets where development removed portions of the old Interurban right of way..., 

but soon the route was back on "track".

One highway overpass was high enough above the surrounding city to be able to see the Olympic Range to the west and by turning towards the southwest from the same spot...,

there was Mt. Rainier!  (Some telephoto involved)

At ten miles I had just crossed over Interstate 5 in Alderwood and decided to head back but this was my turn around point, the start of a 15 mile section of Interurban that continues all the way to Everett.

On the way back to Shoreline I enjoyed these unusual clouds.
All in all a nice 20 mile, round trip, ride.  (click for map of route)

I'm thinking I would like to ride from Shoreline to Everett next time and take the Swift Bus back.  That could be an interesting adventure.  Stay tuned!
