Niwot Loop Trail

Niwot Loop Trail

I found the Niwot Look Trail by accident. Last week, I was driving along Mineral Road on my way to Boulder and the evening light was so beautiful that I pulled off on side road so I could stop and take a picture. The side road I pulled off on was 79th Street and it so happens that right there, after turning from Mineral Road onto 79th Street, sits the Niwot Loop Trailhead.

We spent today at the Museum of Flight in Seattle where we’ve seen a bunch of stunning aircraft. The highlight of the day was of course seeing and going aboard Concorde G-BOAG, affectionately known as as Alpha Golf.

Today we visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a public aquarium that has been involved in a variety of marine research projects that I’ve read about over the years.
