A Walk on Mercer Island

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Blogging the Centurion Achievement Challenge #97.

I won't tell you how cold it was as I began the "mid-island" walk on Mercer Island this afternoon. I'll show you.

Keep in mind this is the warmest part of the day, and flowing water is the last to freeze.

Walk Y1050 starts in the city of Mercer Island, whose dedication to public art is shown in the various works displayed along its streets and paths.

Leaving the town, the route climbs the island crest passing through parks.

At the top of the hill, the 10k route turns and walks through neighborhoods of beautiful homes, past more parks, community centers and schools. I have limited time today, so I chose the 6k route which headed back down the hill towards the town.
I went through a park with this fun toy -- my boys would have loved it as children.

I passed the post office (and mailed in the "start card" for this walk) a beautiful fire station, then returned to my car.
Thanks Trailblazers for sponsoring another nice walk.

    Yes. Usually our area has mild winter weather, but this cold has lasted a long time.
