A week ago, Victor and I went for our first walk from Seattle Stairway Walks. The next day, I went for another with my friend N. Then the next day I went for another…and BLAM! just like that I am walking one every day.
The East Queen Anne walk was plenty of stairs and climbs by itself, though for fitter folks combining it with the Southwest Queen Anne walk would be perfect, which will be our plan for a walk here later this summer. The views are incredible, the history notes are fun, and getting to finally see the Coleman House was a real treat.
Here’s a video about the house. I love our little Victorian, and totally admire the whimsy of what they did to the outside and that garden, but holy smokes, I would hyperventalate with anxiety if I had to spend more than 10 minutes inside it with the loads of
crap stuff on the inside. Take a look:
I’m getting my exercise this winter following the walks in “Seattle Stairway Walks”. You can get your copy here.
On Saturday, February 8th, Feet First hosts its second annual Stairway Walks Day, with guided tours across Seattle neighborhoods, featuring stairs, stairs and more stairs! It’s a fund-raisier, so you buy your tickets right here: Brown Paper Tickets.
