My husband and I took a leisurely 3.5 miles Sunday stroll along streets in the western part of the Mount Baker neighborhood early this afternoon. These streets west of Hunter Boulevard and 38th Avenue S and south of Mount Baker Boulevard are more modest than the streets closer to the lake. The area is residential until reaching Rainier Avenue S and Rainier Square Plaza where I spotted a Chase and a Ross. I also saw the sign for the old Silver Fork restaurant (which now looks to be a Chicken Express).
The area sloped down as we walked west and we saw a few staircases and footpaths
with its sculpture and sitting area,
Horton Hill Corridor Park
and a few less formal climbs including a footpath where we encountered three chickens out for a walk.
Igneous Ensemble Art Park
and its collection of rock art.
