Snohomish Pumpkin patch

The 41st Worldwide Sketchcrawl was yesterday.  I didn’t realize it until it was too late to arrange to go out with some other sketchers.  Will our gathering today count?   The Seattle Urban Sketchers met at the Craven Farm in Snohomish.

It was a 1.25 hour drive for me with no traffic.  Mine was the second car in the lot at 0920.  By the time we left 3.5 hours later, there were hundreds of cars.  It’s a very popular pumpkin patch.   They have hay rides, pumpkin slingshot, food venders and a non-scarey 30-D pumpkin barn adventure.

It was also cloudy, foggy and cold.  It was about 49 degrees the entire time and I didn’t really dress for that.  I did get 2 sketches done despite my cold fingers (it’s time to always have gloves in the car).  The first is the entrance with its wall of pumpkins.  Also, note the flood levels indicated on the wall of the building at left.

Next is a corner of a building where the vine attracted me.

I think we had 14 people.  Two missing from this photo:

Nilda and Tina are bundled up well for the weather.

Sharing the sketches:

Here are few photos around the center courtyard of the farm.  They had lots of creative displays that were very photogenic and sketch-worthy.

Wheel barrows waiting for customers to use to haul their pumpkin purchase.

On the way home, I stopped to see the always spectacular row of maples at Gene Coulon Park in Renton:
