October 29 — S. of 17th, W. of Alpine

North of Mountain View, west of Alpine, south of 17th, east of railroad tracks.

Total for today :   19,530 steps and  3:44 time. 

This was an overcast day all morning… which I actually quite like.  I’m splitting the pictures up into the West of Lashley neighborhood, and the East of Lashley.  Then at the end I’ll toss in all the Halloween pictures from either neighborhood.

The West of Lashley neighborhood has an (almost) alphabetical Alaska street name theme down in the southern part.  It’s a little different in that some come off of Martin Street (Anchorage, Kodiak, and Nome) and some come off of Lamplighter (Barrow, Juneau, and Fairbanks).   Not quite fitting in with the theme is Dawson… Dawson City is in the Yukon Territory, but is only about 50 miles from Alaska.
