All Hail! O Washington!
Dave and I took time before the football game on Saturday to wander across the campus of our alma mater, the University of Washington. Some folks think Husky grads are a bit snobby about our school, but really, 4 years in these spectacularly beautiful surroundings will do that to anyone. This is Rainier Vista. In the distance you can see Drumheller Fountain, otherwise known as Frosh Pond. On a clear day, if you turn the other direction, Mt. Rainier is perfectly framed in the middle of this long tree-lined avenue. Unfortunately the mountain was being shy on Saturday so I couldn't get a picture. This lawn is the site of many a spring quarter whiffleball game. It's also a photo stop on city bus tours so there are lots of folks in Japan who have pictures of Dave and company playing whiffleball.
