Early morning ferry ride on Puget Sound

Edmonds to Kingston. The Puget Sound Ferry System is the largest such system in the United States and the third largest in the world…however, it holds the #1 spot, worldwide, for most passengers/vehicles transported per year: 11 million. Photo by my daughter, en route to the Kingston area.

History & Images: Portland’s Union Station……

“Union Station is a train station near the west shore of the Willamette River in the Old Town Chinatown section of Portland, Oregon, United States.
The initial design for the station was created in 1882 by McKim, Mead, and White. Had the original plan been built, the station would have been the largest train station in the world.”

“A smaller plan was introduced by architects Van Brunt & Howe, and accepted in 1885. Construction of the station began in 1890. It was built by Northern Pacific Terminal Company at a cost of $300,000, and opened on February 14, 1896. The signature piece of the structure is the 150 ft. tall Romanesque clock tower. The “Go By Train” neon sign was added to it after World War II.
The station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.” (Wiki)

Today, I was at Union Station picking up my wife, arriving back from Seattle. I took the camera in to take a few images. I usually don’t take random, everyday shots, but decided what the heck.

Wind Turbine Prop/Blade is Huge

I was motoring out the freeway today when I came upon an awkward object on a very long truck-trailer rig. It was heading East…I assume destined up the Gorge.

I didn’t get a very good shot with the cell, but you get the idea.

Concerned Citizen captured this shot of a trailered blade. He looks at the issue from a deeper perspective than me.
