Downtown Port Townsend

This is downtown Port Townsend’s main intersection. The traffic light is set to blink red in all directions … but because the lights are mounted on the street corners instead of hanging in the middle of the road, there are a lot of drivers (especially visitors) that miss the lights and run the intersection.

A nice workout to climb to the view to the west with downtown Seattle and Puget Sound in the distance.
