Belmont - Hawthrone - Laurelhurst Walk
Topic: Volkswalks

 I walked a 10K volkswalk today through some very beautiful and old homes and very "cool" businesses.  I entered Laurelhurst Park twice which I have been meaning to do but never got around it.  It's a beautiful park some very interesting trees, some of which look like they are melting.

The houses are very upscale and, often, historic.  I always plan to learn more about the architecture of old homes but never do.  I just love looking at them.  I wouldn't want to own them as the upkeep on them would be very high. 

The walk was a 10K but I probably walked 11 or 12K as I managed, as usual, to get lost.  I walk along listening to music on my tablet and enjoying the beauty around me and finding new parts of Portland to appreciate. Unfortunately, I also tend to forget that I have a map to follow and regularly have to backtrack, as I did today.

Well, the detours are always interesting but I was tired when I got back to the start point at the Providence Medical Center.  There are two other walks starting from them that I plan on taking as they also sound interesting. 

Strange trees in Laurelhurst Park.
