My husband and I took a shorter Crown Hill/Greenwood walk today, 4.1 miles. We walked streets I had not already covered between Dibble and Greenwood from NW 101st to NW 92nd Street.
Holman Road is a busy commercial strip and 3rd Avenue NW is a pretty busy street (pictured in a prior post). 8th NW is a little less busy and the rest of the streets we walked were pretty quiet (except for the sounds of traffic close to Holman and to 3rd).
This area is a mix of older single family homes in various states of repair and some new multifamily units near Holman Road.
Pipers Creek runs through this area and we saw a few signs asking us to help keep Pipers Creek from running down the drain.
We saw trees with interesting trunks,
trees that had been bonsaied,
palm trees, a tree that had been cut down but its ivy-covered stump left,
This area is home to the Ballard Care and Rehabilitation Center.
Another walk with a few surprises.
