8:00 am at Highline Botanical Garden, 13735 24th Ave. S., SeaTac WA
This will be the Mountaineers first photography trip to this relatively new botanical garden. The garden is made of specimen plants that were transplanted from a resident, the late Elda Behm, who's magnificent backyard garden had to be removed for the construction of the third airport runway. You may also wish to explore the park around the garden, which contains the remnants of a neighorhood that was bought out and torn down for airport noise abatement. The park has abandoned yards, stairways, ponds, and other leftovers of people's lives. Bring an assortment of lenses and shoes appropriate for walking wooded trails.
