Nisqually NWR

Just to prove that modelling isn’t the only thing we do here in 72 Land, here are a couple of shots from a hike we took today at the Nisqually NWR.

We combined the Twin Barns Trail and the Estuary Trail for a 4.5 mile walk along the Nisqually River, its various marshes, and the 1.5 mile long boardwalk over the tidal estuary. The Nisqually River begins on Mt Rainier and courses along 80 miles to Puget Sound. The wildlife refuge covers the last few miles of the trip. We couldn’t have asked for better weather – 78 degrees and bright sunshine. It might even last until next weekend, but don’t bet money on it. Having lived here for 27 years, I can’t tell you how many times we’ve seen the phenomenon of getting sunny weather until Friday afternoon, having it cloud up and usually rain over the weekend, then dawning bright and sunny on Monday morning. It’s the origin of the old NW joke: What do you call the day after two days of rain in Seattle? Monday.

The 18 pictures I shot from the trip are in my Photobucket account at this link if you are interested.

Back to our regularly scheduled modelling blog shortly.
