Stair Walk No. 10: East Queen Anne

As this game started on West Queen Anne, it seemed fitting that the last walk of the week would be East Queen Anne. Stunning views, lots of stairs, and plenty to look at.

Stairs in Lakewood: Walk 22

Walk 22 in the "Seattle Stairway Walks" is a couple miles south of where we live, and plenty of streets I've never been on. Lots of home gawking and a walk along the Lake.
