It was a long first day in Seattle. There were a lot of walking and were quite tired by the end of the day. We had managed to try lots of food though which was a good thing.
On the way back to the hotel, I wanted to go look for the famous Fremont Troll and take a few pictures.
The Fremont Troll is located under the Aurora Bridge on N 36th and Troll Ave. It’s just by a quiet neighborhood with really narrow roads. Although the street is completely parked with cars, getting a spot is easy. It is because there are so many tourist who just come, take pictures and go.
I can’t really figure out what the big deal is with the sculpture. The kids enjoys climbing the structure but other than that there is really nothing to it.
Anyone knows the history behind the Fremont troll? Especially who is behind this sculpture?
Oh well, at least I’ve seen what the Fremont Troll looks like.
