Pacific Northwest Trekkers in Seattle

Today we started off by making sure our bikes were in tip-top shape. We ran into a few problems, but managed to fix them with the help of our trip leaders and the mechanic Jack at REI. We asked the locals where to eat and got some teriyaki nourishment at a little Asian deli. Later, we explored the city and wound up at the Olympic Sculpture Park, then the Myrtle Edwards Park. We enjoyed the beach there and tried unsuccessfully to take a photo of everyone jumping. It'll take some practice. There were some great views of the Space Needle, Elliott Bay, and Mt. Rainier. For dinner the food committee provided fajitas, strawberries, and ice cream, which we consumed while discussing the day and our plans for tomorrow. We're excited to head into the wilderness!
