24:365 Discovery

Happy Easter! I hope that everyone had a lovely day today. :-)

Anna: After we all decimated the contents of our Easter basket, my elder daughter and I decided to go for a walk and explore some areas we haven't been to yet. After walking down a residential street overlooking the river valley, admiring the architecture (and finding the home of some Franciscan Friars), we started meandering our way back home. That's when we discovered a set of stairs going down into a ravine. This is where those stair led us. Half way down, the first set of stairs ended at a path. Off to one side, a second set led down to this bridge at the bottom of the ravine, where my daughter stopped to take a picture of some anti-nazi graffiti. We didn't go up the set of stairs in this picture. Instead, we back tracked to the path and followed it in the general direction of home. We had no idea where it would take us. Eventually, we found ourselves as a park and playground just a few blocks from where we live.

We're definitely going to have to drag the rest of the family back there and see where else the paths will take us!

really nice perspective on this one, is your daughter ever going to guest contribute to this blog?

Looks like a neat place to wander!

I don't know if she will - she knows she's welcome so and, so far, hasn't said no. I'm hoping she will.

And yes, it does look like a neat place to wander! We're going to have to make a point to go back in different seasons. Very soon, it'll be flowing with run-off, but we were talking of coming back later in the summer and exploring the bottom.

What a cool find. And I agree about the nice perspective and neat place to wander comments.

Looks like you had a great walk and a great time. I was kind of wondering what that white stuff was on the ground, though... Snow in March? Looks pretty, but I don't think it would agree with my spoiled and soft California temprament.

ooops... I seem to be having the worst time with my spelling this morning -- it's "temperament", I think...

This is my favorite kind of walk: discovering a new beautiful place and following unknown paths. Happy Easter!
