Well, the cherry blossoms on the quad are not quite ready, it will take another warm week or so. In any event, it was lovely to see the trees and some of the blooms out, and also the magnolia trees.

Nice campus, but if you are looking for a walk, there are a large number of easily accessible parks, trails, and national parks that would be more enjoyable.

It's a beautiful campus and was a delight to walk around and see the mix of both older and modern buildings that keep the traditional university atmosphere. We liked especially, seeing the new Husky Football Stadium since my husband and children are avid football fans.

I love this place, best kept secret, the ARBOREUM. Lovely views and awesome trails and smiling people, great gift shop, where I purchased a cook book in 1998. Best PNW recipes ever, need a repeat visit this spring, after the snow clears!!

Best time to visit is March/April when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. But anytime of the year would be good to visit this area.

The students of this University must be really very fortunate that Paul Allen foundation as well as Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation must be doing so much to give back to the city for they have achieved and earned so much respect world over.
