I was rewarded with spectacular views, today, as I walked 6.7 miles along the streets of East Queen Anne. I walked streets from Halladay to Blaine between Warren and Taylor Avenues N.
This is a well-kept residential area due north of Seattle Center and just a few blocks from the restaurants and shops on Queen Anne Avenue. It has lovely views of Lake Union and Lake Washington beyond. The Space Needle often popped into view as I walked south.
Most of my walk was not too hilly but there was a steep drop-off down to Aurora Avenue on the eastern edge. I observed stairways and paths down into the Northeast Queen Anne Greenbelt and a bridge over a steep ravine.

Brian Coleman House on Nob Hill between Newton and Crockett. Inscribed on the turret of this lovingly restored Victorian are the words "Quo Amplius Eo Amplius" (according to Wikipedia, this means "something more beyond plenty" and is apocryphally credited to Borges, House on Nob Hill in an unauthorized Morgenstern translation around 1962).
