Whoops, I realized I missed a rainy day: Friday, November 15. Sorry.

Almost every time I ride across the Montlake Cut, I want to stop and take a picture. It’s so interesting in every way.
You can’t see it in this picture because of how it’s framed, but you get a clear view right up the Cut, across Lake Washington, to Bellevue and the Cascade Mountains beyond. Looking west, you look into South Lake Union, Seattle, and the Olympic Mountains.
At sunrise or sunset it’s spectacular. Even in the dark, you get city lights on water.
So today I finally stopped and took a picture, although it doesn’t remotely capture all the stuff I like about the Cut. It was a day of scattered sprinkles during our ride, which changed to raining in earnest as soon as I got home. This proved a happy outcome for me, as I got to ride my fast bike one last time before surgery.
