a lovely stretch of highway

Along the drive from Seattle to my sister's house in Mill Creek, there's this one stretch of the freeway between exits 178 and 179 where towering walls of dark green trees flank you on either side. No building or other sign of the modern world (other than, of course, the freeway itself) is in sight. I've driven it probably a hundred times now, if you count each direction, and every time it just makes me full of awe and so happy to be here.
