Today, I returned to Southeast Magnolia with intentions of taking the photos I had missed during my last walk in this neighborhood. I walked 7.9 miles on adjoining streets but tripped and fell before taking the photos so I will have to take them on another walk in the area. Today, I walked streets from 24th and 31st Avenues W between Darvus to McGraw.
This is a hilly, residential area of neat homes on tidy streets with sidewalks and curbs. Dravus and 28th are the busiest streets and homes got grander the higher up the hill I climbed.
There are quite a few staircases and dead end streets.
A few of the Avenues have median strips with one side of the avenue much higher than the other.
The area has great views of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound.
the old Magnolia School, which appears to have been closed but, given all the young children I saw in the parks, I wonder if some young parents wish it were open - a Magnolia blog indicates that squatters have been an issue and encourages the school district to sell the property or maintain it),
My goal was to walk every public street in the city of Seattle. Four years after starting I have logged 2,722 miles and completed the goal. The orange and red areas on the map reflect the neighborhoods I walked. Brown areas represent some private roads and properties I did not walk.
A list of some of my favorite discoveries and an index of walks by neighborhood can be found in the March 2015 posts and in the very bottom post June 8, 2010.
