Travel is a treat when you bring the dogs!

All about town…Seattle, other than the Space Needle and coffee!

A quality day seeing the sights of Seattle today!
First Stop! Fremont Troll! A great neighbor hood and this 18ft troll!! This area was heavily populated with Scandinavian folk back in the day and stories of trolls are rich in their history and have remained an common theme in the Fremont district even today. An art competition was launched to clean up the area under the Aurora Bridge, and in 1990, this guy was winner!

Next stop is Gas Works Park! Formally home to Seattle Gas and Light (the last coal gasification plan in the US) 1906-56, it became a park in 1975!

Great view and the mountains in the background!
