SUMMARY: Some uphill practice.As I noted yesterday, my goal --starting 2 weeks ago--was to go up these stairs at Communications Hill two times, three days a week.
We start here next to these tall, stately Italian cypress. See those teeny tiny Italian Cypress wayyyy at the top of the hill (upper right next to the condos)? That's where the stairs go.
The dogs would like to put in a vote for doing something more sensible, like walking around the block among the pretty townhouses.
It doesn't look so bad from the bottom--just these steps and then you're almost there, right?
But then you get to that landing--and it goes around a corner and up again. But after THAT, you're almost there, right? Just up to that overlook?
Then you get to the overlook and, despite having already done 129 steps, ha ha, guess what--there's more! 93 more, to be exact.
Once you finish, there are nice views, though (there's that overlook below us that had looked like it had to be at the top).
So--let's go back down around the hill and come up again!
