Walking up to the park, I took some death stairs.
For those of you who are newer here, that's what I call large outdoor staircases I encounter on my walks. It's particularly apt for these, since they're covered in slippery wet branches due to the last major storm.
I used the neighborhood shortcuts to get back. Moving Eastward, I used the first two, and there's one more that leads from my street out one more close to the main drag. Some kids were playing by that one, and as I emerged from the second one, they fell silent. I think maybe they thought they were the only ones who know about the shortcuts. Sorry, boys.
Here's a nice shot of our trees I got on the way in.
