From the hip: some things shot on Sunday

On Sunday Spiz and I got out for a very chilly ride through the Snohomish and Snoqualmie River basins. We travelled down some new roads and saw some interesting things.We passed by this thicket of sticks that had been completely overrun with cobwebs. The morning fog stuck to the gossamer and made it really stick out. Later in the afternoon we passed a similar thicket just South of Snohomish, the wind and sun had both increased and you could see the strands stretching all the way out across the road. Soon enough my handlebars and brake lines were silly with the stuff.

Some scenic aspens, always pretty in the fog.

Cattails in a marsh, also always pretty in the fog.

What's going on here? Is there a Garage Sale where everything is Free? Or did they have a Garage Sale already and no longer need the sign, so the sign is free? If it's the later, wouldn't there be the same confusion about the sign when using it for your own garage sale? Either nobody would want to pay for anything or someone steals your sign.

The bow-legged cow.Bah! Flat tire. It was a slow leak so we found some nice sunny benches in Snohomish to warm ourselves on during repairs.
Shard of glass, will get ya every time.

Found a scale model of the Statue of Liberty in East Everett, it was kinda jacked up though. I guess you can't expect any better in a random strip mall.


  1. I don't think it was the strip mall that jacked her up. More likely the 8 years of Republican control of the White House. Just a guess...

  2. Is that statue different from the one on Alki?
    Finally saw the site of the bow-legged cow.
    Isn't Snohomish beeyouteeful?
