Edmonds is a well-loved Seattle suburb because of its homey downtown, wonderful views across the water, and easy access by ferry to Kitsap Peninsula. On top of that, it’s a great ride from Green Lake. Heading north, the route barrels through the neighborhoods of Greenwood, Bitter Lake, and Shoreline. For a taste of officially sanctioned kitsch, make a stop at the Viewlands Hoffman Receiving Station, a Seattle City Light power substation at Fremont and North 107th. The northwest corner of the industrial enclosure contains a curious set of handmade wind sculptures made from kitchen items. It’s a tribute to the quirky pastime of Emil Gehrke of Grand Coulee, who created and maintained the rusting art.
