After a week off due to snow, rain and too much smutty reading, it was nice to get back out for another stairway walk to another neighborhood I have rarely been too, Outer Mongolia. No, I mean, Magnolia.
With one very lucky bus connection, I managed to do both Stairway Walk #1 and #2 today, first visiting Fremont and then heading over to walk up the Ravenna Ravine.
Bundling up, my pal N. and I head to the University to find the stairs and admire architecture & youth.
We stomp around my old neighborhood on a walk filled with many of my favorite Seattle places.
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.
Here's another park I have never heard of, plus a very long walk across downtown.
Needing a little shorter walk today to rest the legs a bit, I went to Laurelhurst. This is walk No. 6 in the Seattle Stairway Walks.
2.3 miles, 371 stairs down, 406 stairs up. This was a very winding course through one of Seattle's most lovely (and difficult to find your way around in) neighborhoods.
