Got your attention! This article is not about the river being live with electricity but rather about a City Light substation wedged between the river and freeway. Remember how I stated I had to be inventive on my quest to get to the river bank? This article not only will show you the massive wires and transformers but also how I got to the bank.
Looking towards the river I saw this bird sitting on a piling through the legs of a tall steel power tower. Feather Moment is a blog I wrote about this bird and a Heron with a stray feather.
Getting around the Substation to see the Duwamish River bank was a bit of a challenge. I found others had blazed the way and there was a trail. Check out how high up the water was in the river. The tide was coming in and it had rained a lot the days prior to my visit down here.
It was all worth it – check out the view it yielded.
To see more of my Duwamish Adventure I have a directory post that links all of the pieces together. You can find that post here – My Duwamish Adventure Directory
