That was the headline of the Seattle Times this weekend. June is always an changeable unpredictable month here in Seattle. It is a time of transition. Some years it is mild and the temperatures steadily increase up to July. Other years, it just is dreary.
And then there is this year; a record breaking year for low maximum temperatures. Hey, if you are sweltering right now – I don’t want to hear about it. Right now, it is 58 degrees and that may have been our high today! Jet stream – get your butt up into Canada where you belong in June.
G and I have been snipping at each other. The gray days will do that to you. The forecast was for sun breaks on Sunday so we took a chance (or advantage) to get outside. The snow level was down to 5,000 so we stayed in town. We took a walk around Discovery Park.
The park is a treasure for Seattle. It is located on the bluffs in Magnolia neighborhood overlooking the Puget Sound. It was formerly an Army site and there are some cool memorials on the park. But today, it is run by the city and provides a 534 acre escape from the grind of the city.
It is also great in-city hike. There is a 3 mile loop trail that takes you along the bluffs, down to the beach and back around through the forest. On a cold June day, it is the perfect escape.
