I have been kind of dreading this stretch of My Duwamish Adventure. It is along a busy four lane road between a steep forested hill and industry that border the river. West Marginal Way and it’s sister East Marginal Way border the river. To my surprise I did find a few goofy and weird things along with the grim of industry.
Let us start with the container yards that are a mountain between me and the river.
On the north end of this long straight road is a couple of industrial manufactures including the Lafarge cement plant.
Not to disappoint me West Marginal had a few weird or unusual sites to break up the quest to get to the river. First there was the coffee place shaped like a ship.
Next we have in the middle of this industry the brave American Flag being flown.
Across the street is a construction company with an old Willy’s Pickup in their bone yard. I swear this is my old truck that I sold in 1980 to go to semi-truck school. It has seen better days for sure.
Stairs to nowhere exist behind another company on the west side of the road.
Nature and industry don’t always cohabitat well. This dead tree is a testament to this.
Then there are some strange things stored in the container yards.
I leave you with art in a surprising place. I found this series on the back of a road sign.
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
