March 31 at Green Lake

Walk #31 of 31

This month my goal has been to walk around Green Lake daily, take a few pics, and post them here on the blog. Today the goal has been accomplished. Thank you to all who left me encouraging comments along the way. And a special thank you to 5 bloggers who left me some encouragement for every post ... check out the great blogs they publish!

Green Lake is about 5 miles (8 km) north of downtown Seattle, Washington. The path around the lake is about 2.8 miles (4.5 km). During the 31 days I was blessed with dry weather almost every day. I found the best routine to be arriving at the lake and starting the walk about 30 minutes before sunrise. Walking along as the sky brightened seemed to brighten my outlook for the day ahead. An early start also usually meant I had the path mostly to myself and I enjoyed the peace and quiet.

The colors seem more like fall than spring.
The morning light has that orange tinge.
