Bruno Weber Sculpture Park

Today thanks to the Atlas Obscura I had a great time wandering around the Bruno Weber Sculpture Park at Dietikon near Zurich. It's an amazing, and slightly creepy place. Like Gaudi meets Angkorwat: lots of strange concrete sculpture that is starting to age and is in a little bit of disrepair. If anything the slightly decrepit state gives it even more atmosphere.
















People playing Aplhorns: hauntingly beautiful music

Mt. Rainier and Packwood

We stayed in Packwood and hit up Mt. Rainier with Em's family.


Rainier at sunset from Packwood



Hot enough to be wearing shorts and T-shirts but plenty of snow at Paradise for making snowmen and having a snowball fight. Weirdest snow experience ever.




We also took the Mt. Rainier gondola from Crystal Mountain


Simply amazing mountain views from the top of the gondola

Starbucks Reserve, Seattle

Unlike any other Starbucks and worth a look if you are in Seattle. It is PACKED on weekends though. Everything is very modern with lots of brass fittings. They roast and pack the coffee into bags onsite. It's actually quite fun to watch.

Saint Edward: A state park with a beautiful playground, lawn, a Downton Abbey-esque building, and MTB singletrack. Just a few minutes away. What a place!

First Washington MTB exploring: Grand Ridge to Duthie Hill singletrack

I was worried that the mountain biking may not be as good as California. No problems on that front, it's glorious.
