Rebels By Bus

Slow Travel With Low Carbon Footprint

Antiques galore in Snohomish

snohomish townAs Rebel Vicki so aptly stated:  “On this day after Mothers’ Day, we were greeted with glorious sunshine, new people, new sites and sights, and new experiences!!”
The weather WAS picture-postcard perfect.  Blue sky everywhere we went.
We used four different buses on our trek to Snohomish.  Our short layover in Seattle allowed us to gawk at the gorgeous Union Station (former train station in Seattle.)

From 4th and Jackson in Seattle we hopped aboard the bus that took us to the Everett Station, which is the city’s transportation hub for buses, and the Sounder and Amtrak trains.  Another short 20 minute ride along Highway 2 towards Stevens Pass and the Cascade mountains found us in Snohomish.

Our trip home included a ride on the Sounder train from Seattle to Lakewood.  Check out Vicki’s photo of the rhubarb fields (and THE mountain) outside of Puyallup.  Wow…

Thanks for a great day… looking forward to our NEXT trip to Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood and the Arboretum.
