The Seattle Convention and Trade Center and the adjoining Freeway Park were both built straddling Interstate 5, a major freeway running the full length of the west coast of the U.S. What a great use of empty space over a freeway! This is the only convention center in the country that is built in such a way.
The park brings life and beauty to the urban environment.
I must return in summer to see what this park looks like then!
Interesting juxtaposition. Trees were once the towering giants here.
Just a matter of perspective, I guess.
At the same time last year, Loree posted images of her visit to this park here. Comparing her images to these, it looks as if the plants are roughly about as far along as they were then even though we had a colder than average January.
It amazes me that this whole thing floats above the freeway. If you go to the edges of the park, you can look down at traffic and contemplate jumping. Imagine the traffic back up! And the mess. Yuk! I wonder what would happen in the event of a major Earthquake?
Well, enough of those happy thoughts! Hope your week is going well. Happy Hump Day!
