    Default Discovery Park in winter

    Out for exercise and fresh air to Discovery Park (formerly Fort Lawton). A cool grey Seattle winter day that some how makes the green of the mosses even more vibrant.

    Very nice! Not far from my place, I'll have to venture out there and check it out.

    Something about a forest full of mossy trees is hauntingly beautiful. Great pics!

    Nice. Are there areas in the park to practice some bushcraft skills, like fire starting, or building a shelter with deadwood, etc?

    Sorry, it's an urban park and so no fires or camping.
    The old fort's property is interesting, being the site of a wild park, the lighthouse, a few historic fort buildings, a huge aviation radar dome, a previous Nike missile site (completely gone now), and Seattle's major sewage treatment plant (which is a surprisingly good inconspicuous neighbor).
    On my walk I spotted a male bald eagle flying not 50' above me, too quickly past for me to deploy the camera.
    I believe it's the largest park in Seattle and when you are in the midst of the woods the city might as well be hundreds of miles away.
    Any one interested in in more info can check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Lawton or google for more pictures of the fort.
