Columbia City

During today's 5.3 mile walk, my husband and I experienced the greenery of Cheasty Blvd and Greenspace and the light rail tracks along Martin Luther King Jr. Way S.

We also walk through the western portion of Rainier Vista.

This newer development is tidy and has some nice play areas

as well as Neighborhood House (providing a number of social services)

and a kid's garden and community farm.

We spotted a few Habitat for Humanity houses being built along MKL Jr Way (but backing onto the farm).

Across MLK Jr Way, we spotted another section of Rainier Vista (we even got a view of Mount Rainier) and the ReWA (Refugee Women's Alliance). On the west side of the street, we noted an HFC store (Hamdi Food Corporation)

and the Asian Counseling and Referral Service.

We waited as the train passed before crossing over to the United House of Prayer for All People.

Along the way, we could see Jefferson Park Golf Course and the VA hospital; we passed the Washington Care Center and the Church of God in Seattle.

This walk was truly varied and it marked the 2,500 mile point for my walks.
