North Creek

So today, two friends and I took a train ride to North Creek.  You might be thinking to yourself, 'okay, why would a train be going to North Creek, and exactly what is there to do in North Creek once the train arrives there?'

Hmmm, I had the very same thoughts when I saw the flyer for the trip.  I mean, I've been through North Creek and I guarantee it's not a thriving metropolis.  Actually, it's not a metropolis of any kind, and it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

Always on the lookout for a new experience and a new photo opportunity, I decided to take the trip anyway, and fortunately two of my friends agreed to go along. 

However, Indian Summer decided to return with a vengeance today.  The train was very warm on the way there, and a veritable sauna on the way home. No a/c, no breeze, and hardly any view to speak of.  In spite of that, we did manage to have some great conversation, a yummy lunch at one of the local restaurants and some fun taking photos in front of a wonderful mosaic mural.

Back at the train depot, we saw this old car off to the side.  Not the best abandoned car specimen I've every seen, but it will do.

Image #2 - is that strictly HDR? Or did you add a filter? It's amazing!
