Today's walk wrapped up some loose ends on Beacon Hill. A friend and I walked the Chief Sealth Trail from 51st Avenue South and South Gazelle Street to 15th Avenue South and South Angeline Street and then turned around and walked back to 15th and Gazelle.
Our 10.3 mile walk was hilly but we were rewarded with views of Mount Rainier, Lake Washington, the Cascades and the Olympics.
We saw people out gardening,
a crew mowing the grass,
a large new P-Patch
and some yard art.
After this walk, I added 2.2 miles, filling in streets that I had missed in Mid Beacon Hill. I admired spring blooms as I completed the streets of Beacon Hill.
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 have 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 very bottom post June 8, 2010.
