In 1967 I was a preschooler living in Seattle's East Lake neighborhood. Me and a friend, Pero would explore beneath the recently constructed I-5. We were amazed by the towering concrete columns and the hum of vehicles high above. This project was originally a test of my new Rode Stereo Videomic Pro coupled with my Canon 7D.

The I-5 Colonnade in Seattle, Washington, is a 7.5-acre city park underneath Interstate 5 connecting the Capitol Hill and Eastlake neighborhoods, which were divided by the freeway in the 1960s. It was created in 2005.
The Mountain Bike Skills Park is located on a roughly 2 acre portion. The bike park's first trail, Limestone Loop, opened on Sept 8 2007. The trails were constructed by the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance. Trails span a wide variety of riding styles.
