Sightseeing
A lovely 4 block walk away, this sandstone building is among the country’s most impressive capitols. Go inside! Walk the switchback trail down to Capital Lake for a paved path that’s popular among walkers and runners. Don’t be surprised if you spot Gov. Inslee who uses this route for his early morning workout.
