The last big Seattle urban hike we did was in November 2014 (creatively called An Urban Hike). Today, we ventured out under sunny skies and did a similar route from Fremont to University District to Capitol Hill to South Lake Union and back to Fremont.

The hike was about 26,000 steps, 13+ miles. Started at 11:30 am from Fremont. Stopped for lunch at Vios around 1:30pm. Continued on to Vivace (near REI) for coffee and then on home around 4:30 pm.

Instead of flowers and wildlife, we call out graffiti and used furniture.
