A curved section of track with trees on both sides

A curved section of track just north of downtown Woodinville. The curve looks much sharper than it actually is because of the telescopic camera lens. Note the good quality of the track, including welded rail (as seen by the absence of joints in the rail) and superelevation (i.e., rail on outer side of curve slightly higher than on inner side) to allow higher speeds.
