The Fremont Rocket in Seattle, Washington

Back in 1991 when the center of the universe was discovered, it was decided that Fremont needed a monument that would capture their new status in the world. Many ideas were passed around as to what that monument should be, but when a circa 1950 cold war rocket fuselage attached to a store in Bell town was being dismantled the choice became clear. And, thus, the Fremont Rocket was born.

Waiting for the Interurban in Fremont, Seattle, Washington

I always seem to be waiting for the bus. Recent cuts to Chicago service mean I have to wait a little longer for the number nine between Lakeview and Wicker Park.

And, inevitably, on the coldest day of the year, I will miss the brown line by ten seconds and have to wait on ...
