Seattle Engagement Session at Carkeek Park // Paul + Michelle

August 20, 2020

I loved being able to take a quick trip down to Carkeek Park with Michelle, Paul, and their pup. The sunset was perfect and the night was surprisingly warm. It made for the greatest golden haze in the photos. Seattle is really amazing with the options they have for parks and views.

The road down to the parking lot was closed for COVID when we went (I am pretty sure it’s back open now), so we park in the neighborhood next door and walked the steep hill down. Walking down was a breeze! Walking up… I realized how long it had been since I had gone on a hike or done really any exercise at all haha. At least it’s not the stairs at Golden Gardens, right? IYKYK. This along with the approaching Spring weather has motivated me to start hiking at least once a week. I am on three weeks in a row now with two hikes a week and I really intend on keeping it up, but I need your suggestions!
