Project 52 - Week 21

A photo a week...for a year.  Fifty-two weeks; 52 images, minimum.

Sammamish Slough

The Sammamish Slough (known as the Sammamish River before the US Army Corps of Engineers shortened it from 20 miles and straightened it to improve navigation) flows for about 13 miles through Redmond, Woodinville, Bothell, and Kenmore in north King County, Washington, draining Lake Sammamish into Lake Washington. The river, now slough, is named for the native people who once inhabited the area along its entire length.  

This view is looking upstream; Lake Sammamish is not too far beyond the far tree line.
