Fremont Bridge

This Sunday the weather was really beautiful if still a little chilly. We checked out the Fremont Sunday Market as is our standard weekly habit, and then wandered to the Fremont Brewery to try a few more of their beers. After that we headed to Gas Works Park, a public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant that's located on the north shore of Lake Union. It contains remnants of the sole remaining coal gasification plant in the US. The plant itself operated from 1906 to 1956, then was purchased by the city in 1962 and opened as a public park in 1975. The park's designer, Richard Haag, won the "American Society of Landscape Architects Presidents Award of Design Excellence" for the project. Check out an aerial view of the park here.

  1. Wow, this is really petty and an aumage to both the human condition for both the creation of such things and how far we've come. So many lives were dedicated to such scenes... It's tragic and so, so beautiful at the same time. Great shots. Beautiful.

  5. While at the gas bottle storage, focus on the gas hose, ensure it doesn't have any scrapes or breaks, it will have a date stamp on it, check the date, they should be changed at regular intervals for wellbeing. https://besteenergieleverancier.com/
