Fog I hate (for a change), and a bonus walk

Somewhere Northwest of Everett on the lower part of a very long big hill or small mountain is a row of red lights I assume is meant to stop planes from crashing on their way into the Arlington. I can see it from Mukilteo as well as from Langus and I really want to get a closer look. It appears to stretch for at least a mile, so if there's a way to get there, it might make for a cool walk. Since I had the day off yesterday, I decided to head out early and try to find it. It didn't go so well. It might have, if it weren't for the thick fog. For all I know, I was right by them at some point in my two-hour, forty-minute adventure. At one point I gave up and went to a nature preserve in Arlington, but it was too dark to explore somewhere I'd never been. So I gave up and went to Langus. It was a nice change of pace since I've been there in the dark so much recently.


I took tons of photos, so click over to flickr if you'd like to see more than what's here.


A nice fog was rolling in on the island side, so I went over there even though I wasn't originally planning to.

The fog, surprisingly, was really thick back in town and especially at home.

I was surprised to see Garrett's car was gone when I got home, as the original plan for the day was for him to catch an Uber to work and get a ride to the happy hour he took his team to, which I'd join them for, and drive home. I decided while I was having lunch at the buffet that I'd walk, and drive us home in his car. I've always kind of wanted to walk down there, even though it's on a busy street the whole way. The other time I thought about it was Dennis and Bev's anniversary, and I didn't want to show up soaked in rain for that. Yesterday was really nice, though.

It would have been a really nice walk, but my lower back was really stiff. I enjoyed the scenery in spite of the pain.

The left side of the map should look pretty familiar because I'm down there most Thursdays, and Japanese Gulch is close to the 5-mile mark. The happy hour was lots of fun. Everything's always tasty at Arnie's and the views are great. I also really like Garrett's team. And we don't really do New Year's Eve so it was nice to get out for a bit.
