Fog and the Peace Park

Days are short, the weather is disagreable, and schedules are nuts, so once a week on the bike is about all I can do this fall. This morning was a foggy, damp yet warm. Rode along the Seattle Marathon route for a bit, then through Myrtle Edwards Park, Locks and back. 25 miles or so.

Crossed over the University Bridge, and stopped at the Seattle Peace Park, covered with paper cranes, perhaps in response to the awful news from Mumbai this week, reported via tweets and flickr posts from those on the scene. Social media goes mainstream, scoops the standard news sources, with all the problems of perspective and analysis that go with eyewitness accounts.
