#RunningTo Week 6 in Review: Storybrooke, Seattle, Mount Rainier

There’s no time. NO TIME. I just have to show you guys this:

#RunningTo: Gopher Hole Museum

Oh, sorry, I’m past the Gopher Hole Museum now. It’s such a pity, but I’m glad y’all enjoyed my recounting of that adventure!

Last week’s pictographical recap was my most viewed #RunningTo Week in Review to date, so I’ll be sure to visit another dead / anthropomorphically dressed rodent museum some time! I hear Portland’s got a killer squirrel thing going.

But onto #RunningTo Week 6, which was just as momentous and incredible as all the others. I rounded out my first Canadian venture with a literal walk through Storybrooke! I’m a huge Once Upon a Time fan, so to walk down the “Main Street” of British Columbia’s Steveston where they film — life-changing.

Also a dream come true? Seattle. Simply Seattle. Check out my Week 6 in review!

#RunningTo: Storybrooke

This bakery is still officially called something else, but they leave up their Storybrooke sign year-round!

#RunningTo: Storybrooke

The pet shelter where David Nolan / Prince Charming worked! This building is actually empty inside and serves as a landmark.

Mr. Gold’s pawn shop!

Outside Granny’s!

#RunningTo: Storybrooke

Storybrooke’s library / clocktower! They digitally insert the clock part into the show. Had NO idea.

JIMINY CRICKET’S / DR. HOPPER’S OFFICE DOOR. I just wanted him to be there and counsel me.

#RunningTo: Seattle

My first moments back in Seattle after a 2 1/2 year absence. Glorious.

Pike Place: greatest marketplace in America.

#RunningTo: Seattle

Biking Seattle since Biking Vancouver a week prior was such a thrill!

#RunningTo: Seattle

Most stunning skyline I’ve ever seen.

This poor lady had some trouble taking my picture on the ferry boat . . .

#RunningTo: Seattle

. . . as you can see.

#RunningTo: Mount Rainier

Checking out the tallest mountain in the contig-48!

#RunningTo: Mount Rainier

Rainier at 4am. “Chilling” doesn’t describe the scene enough.

Rainier sunrise after my campout there. She’s glowing.

That’s all for this week’s #RunningTo Week in Review! Keep up to date with all my wanderings on Twitter and Instagram with my #RunningTo hashtag.

Until next time, what’s your favorite dead gopher? Oops. I mean . . . what’s the prettiest city / skyline you’ve ever seen?

  • Josiah Sobrien

    I would say my favorite city skyline would be the Golden Gate Bridge, although I havent really been anywhere besides California and Arizona…. I admire the fact that you have managed to travel all around America like this with such tenacity. It is definitely a dream of mine to travel all over the country and experience the vastness of God’s creations. Your posts are definitely an inspiration! Keep it up Tom.

    • SF certainly has a sweet skyline. The whole west coast is filled with some epic views of cities by the water. Looking forward to hitting that area soon! Glad you’re enjoying my journey, Josiah. I hope you travel and get to experience something like it too someday! Appreciate all the kind words of support. Much love.

  • Rebecka

    I still love that dead gopher angel! As far as cities go, Edinburgh is really pretty and so is Stockholm.

  • AH! I didn’t know you could walk through Storybrooke! I love Once Upon a Time, so I guess that’ll have to be added to my “To Visit” list…Can you go into places like Granny’s and Mr. Gold’s?! Anyway, so cool to view your adventures, the pictures of Rainier are awesome! I haven’t been too many places, but Pittsburgh has a nice skyline!

    • The insides of those buildings are all filmed elsewhere, but the outsides are all up and down that small town street! Pretty awesome experience since I’m a die-hard fan of the show.f

      I’ve never been to Pitt, but have heard great things and hope to visit as part of #RunningTo!
