If you have a yearning for some mountain and water views on one of those rare sunny days in Seattle, head over to Carkeek Park. You will be treated to a expansive beach with amazing views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. And the kids will love exploring its tidepools and seeing the mile long freight trains go by. Less than ten miles from downtown Seattle, you will feel a world away while gazing at the ferry ships on Puget Sound.
One of those mile long trains going by. After seeing one, you realize why it takes them a long time to stop.
A great place to explore tidepools with the kids.
