#happycities have strong communities.

The story of Washington state park affects cities until today.

Decades ago, a group of mothers, with strollers and all, banded together to save Washington State park from being destroyed by a highway.
In the protest they had a sign on a car saying "the last car through Washington state park." And they were probably right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today the park is a living room for families, young and old people, tourists, buskers, and all kinds of users who benefit from it each day.

The woman who led this group was a journalist named Jane Jacobs. During her struggle she wrote a book called 'the death and life of great American cities'. Despite not being a planner, the book today is considered an essential reading to anyone involved in city building. She has inspired generations of urbanists, including myself. These urbanists have spurn change around the world, inspired by her ideas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jacobs is also known for standing up to the strongest man in New York City, Robert Moses (and winning). See the full story in my Stories. .

Taking a wander around #washingtonstatepark with @stewartmaclachlan1

Autumn in the Hood Canal. Headed to Lake Cushman for a client.

Chasing that sunset. We waited a good hour at the beach for this sunset! Odin went fishing and Aspen played in the water. Dad relaxed and mom was beach combing. Happy kids, happy parents!

A silk worm getting to work, a human doing her homework behind the lens, and the difference between my hike lunch and a friends lunch. 😂

Guess how many ibuprofen/stretches/ointments/rollers/massages it took to do this for a few hours? Worth it though. Happy birthday Shea. #petroglyphs #cliffjumping #parkour #rockart #mostateparks #washingtonstatepark
