I've been struggling with the maps for this route. They're loaded on my phone, through the google earth app, which has a tendency to crash after every second or so photo taken, and sometimes at other provocations. This has caused me to use caution when snapping photos, because losing my maps in a ravine or park sometimes means that I can't reload them until I get out of the ravine. All this to say, I don't have a photo of my favorite stairs, because it wasn't worth the risk of crashing my maps at that point in the day.
I walked from 8:30 am until about 7pm, with a number of stops along the way, but none that involved sitting. I bought food at a few places, and walked with it while I ate. The day's temperatures were pleasant at a walking pace, but would have been frigid if I had sat down for any length. There was almost no rain all day long, and enough sun throughout the day to have given me a light sunburn on my face. Thinking back over the stairs and parts of the city that I saw today, I am surprised at how much I saw and how much ground I covered. I don't know how far I went, only that I about reached my limit and was grateful to finish at my apartment in West Seattle, and sit down to a meal cooked by my husband.
