Fauntleroy and Gatewood Neighborhoods of West Seattle

Sound views dominated today's walk as my husband and I took a 5.5 mile walk in the Fauntleroy and Gatewood neighborhoods of West Seattle. We walked streets from 39th to 44th Avenue SW between SW Austin and Cloverdale Streets.

This is a tidy neighborhood of wide streets and lovely gardens. There are not many tall trees.

We saw quite a few staircases leading from California down to 44th

and climbed 132 steps up from 44th to Northrop Place

where we were rewarded by another spectacular view.

This neighborhood abuts Peace Lutheran Church (pictured in a prior post) and a few ravines but, otherwise, it is strictly residential.

I will be happy to return to West Seattle for more walks.
