Queen Anne Hill fall colours

Unfortunately, the ride to Darrington didn’t offer many opportunities to take pictures of fall colors we saw. That’s okay. I can make up for it in my own neighborhood.

That neighborhood would be Queen Anne Hill, home of the gazillion-dollar 1,200 sf Craftsman house (and no, there is no such thing as a “Craftsman Bungalow.” Those are two completely different styles of architecture). The streets are lined with mature maple and other deciduous trees that provide a shady canopy in spring and summer, and wonderful colors in the fall. In the winter, they’re naked and ugly, but hey…

That’s the nice thing about living in the city… the landscape has had many decades to develop a patina, a character you just won’t find in some master-planned beige suburb. Favicon

    It almost looks like you need to rake the street to get a spot to park closer to the curb. Sure looks nice in the Autumn colors.

    Have fun,
