We didn’t get up in the mountains this weekend. Instead, we went on a 14 mile “urban hike” in Seattle. (That’s about 30,000 steps as calculated by Fitbit.) We walked from Fremont to Capitol Hill and back.  Along the way, we had a nice lunch at Bakery Nouveau (Capitol Hill) and a wonderful Italian dinner at Cantinetta. On our hike, we saw some interesting murals, street art, and graffiti.


The Architecture of Endlessness by NKO. A mural that is part of the Capitol Hill Wall Project.
