North of Plateau, west of Prospect neighborhood/105th St., south of Pike , east of Sunset
Total for today: 19,610 steps and 3:26 time.
These are very nice upper-class neighborhoods, relatively new, with lots of nice yards and flowers at this time of year.
BEJEWELED STREET NAMES
Fitting the neighborhood, Rainbow Ridge has a jewel theme going for its street names… Diamond, Amethyst, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, Turquoise, Onyx, and Jade. And leading in to it from the south is Moonstone Court. ‘The Moonstone’, published in 1868 by Wilkie Collins, is considered to be the first detective novel in the English language.
