Railroad Trail to Memorial Park

Living so near the Railroad Trail, it has turned into one of my favorite thoroughfares. If I need anything from a grocery store, I have easy access to a large Haggen grocery store simply by walking less than five minutes along that trail. If I want to take the bus somewhere, there is a covered WTA bus stop right in front to that grocery store. Allowing easy access to a multitude of hiking opportunities, like the Railroad Trail to Scudder Pond hike I enjoyed over the weekend, this time I decided to take the trail in the other direction - to Memorial Park. In honor of the Whatcom County residents who gave their lives in service to this country, in addition to this monument, there is a large monument representing each war that individually lists the names of each local service person that died in the line of duty. 
A narrow bridge overpass at Interstate 5 connects park visitors to residential streets where after walking only a few blocks, the Railroad Trail intersects.
 The view from the Interstate 5 walkway overpass.
Along the Railroad Trail, the wild roses were in full bloom. The color of these, a much deeper pink than often seen.
On one of the trailhead posts, a sign had been posted about a lost dog. If you've seen Lilly, please call the number listed.
