Volunteer Park, Seattle

After I left Jimi's grave in Renton, I headed up to Seattle, to the Capital Hill area so that I could visit the Lees' graves. Despite my having googled all events going on in Seattle at 8 a.m. on a Sunday, when I arrived up there, all the streets were blocked off. I was stunned. I asked a cop what was going on and he told me there was a road race. It figures. I told him where I was trying to go and he told me to just go around the traffic cones b/c the runners weren't up there yet. So I find my way up to the cemetery, only to find the gates closed. I didn't know what to do...so I drove past and saw the entrance to Volunteer Park. I drove in and decided to kill some time till the cemetery opened. I was glad I did.
