Snohomish Riverfront Trail – Photo Shoot

I’ve attached four photos I took from a short hike I took on the Riverfront Trail in Snohomish, Washington (Snohomish…the town of…sits just north of the Seattle metropolitan area in Snohomish County).

I took a long flight of stairs down to the walk from the Historic Downtown District with features a number of antique shops, great restaurants and bars in old historic buildings along 1st Street. The Snohomish River was running high after a number of days of rain which had been especially heavy in the Cascade Mountain Range where the river originates. The river winds itself through the county and town on it’s journey west meeting the Possession Sound by Everett, Washington.

The skies cleared with sunshine providing great light on fall foliage along the walkway.

Loved the look of the bridge from the trail…..

The retaining wall on the right has engraved plaques of the town history along with a line that marks the high point of the river crest during a flood a number of years back.

    Such beauty you captured! The light on the leaves brings out their golden color!

    We were in Washington just recently and loved it!

      I so love the green up there all year round (I;m not complaining about warm winters here in SoCal or there in Arizona….but the green…love it! We lived in Issaquah for 6 months 5 years ago while our house was being built in Goodyear. Issaquah is very close to where you guys were in Sammamish….beautiful lake!!

    These are beautiful photos, Kirt. The number of hardwood trees makes it look like this could be anywhere, but the lush green reminds me of when I live out there. I remember hiking along the river farther up in the mountains.

      Remember my point of reference with what I am about to say (SoCal and Arizona)….every time we fly into Seattle (any time of the year), I am amazed with how green it is. We have either lived in warm dry climates or when we lived in four season climates, the winters were brown and dead…not up there….always green…green…green. Loved our quick trip and any chance I get to go hiking I’m good to go!

        I moved there in mid-October (1978) and I was amazed by the fact that there was no bright widespread fall color and no brown winter. I was even more amazed by spring, when more shades of green than I could count came into view.

    Hi Kirt. I see that I’ve been absent from your beautiful gallery, but I’m glad I woke up and found this gorgeous post. I love the way you’ve captured the light and patterns in the river. Amazing clarity. Each of these is a beautiful composition. It’s cool that they did the plaques on the wall.
    Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hugs on the wing.
