May Willows, Yesler Swamp


The Army Corps of Engineers has raised Lake Washington to its summer level, so Seattle’s little Yesler Swamp is again flooded. The sun was mostly out this afternoon, and everything was green and full of birds. (As always, however, the photo doesn’t tell the whole story. It looks wild, but it doesn’t quite sound wild. It’s easy to hear cars on the nearby street and people talking as they go by on the sidewalk, and in the background the dull roar from State Route 520.)
