|Here are the stairs at the very beginning of the walk that|
brought us down from the
bridge at the top of the picture across a green area
and into another neighborhood.
This was one of the Feet First Stairway Walks Day walks. This was the second walk that I've done from the Seattle Stairway Walks book. Unlike the first one of the stairway walks that I did, this one had a guide who already knew the walking area.
|Here is our guide Carolyn, giving us some|
background about the walk.
This North Seattle walk is 4.7 miles long and takes you through neighborhoods, natural areas, a community pea patch, and an urban area adjacent to the Northgate Mall. You do cross several busier streets, so if you are walking with children, keep this in mind.

|This heron was in one of the wetland areas|
|I thought it was kind of funny how it looks like the duck is spitting the water out.|
|A tree that the beavers worked on.|
|Along the trail|
|The only fungus I saw|
|Beautiful red bark|
|This is an area where Thornton Creek runs through the Thornton Place Condominiums.|
P.S. I finally ordered the Stairway Walks Seattle book and should have it soon.
