Splendid hike

My daughter and I had a very enjoyable afternoon in the park. Nice, relatively easy, hike down to the beach. Got to see a nice eagle. Beautiful forest. Great shoreline for a walk.

There is a Native American Cultural Center in Discovery Park. In July, there is an amazing Pow Wow in the park near the center. This is a must see if you are in the area. In 2017, it will take place July 14 to 16.

This was my favorite place in Seattle because of the wide open hardly anyone in sight experience I had nearly every time I visited. There are huge fields of blue delphinium among the grasses which make you want to run like a kid...not just jog.
