We walk for seven blocks through the city and suddenly we are on the edge of Washington Park, a 40 acre park we walk through to get to the Rose Garden.
Today we hiked up the 220 steps to the top of a big hill on the way to the gardens. The walk through the woods is so peaceful.
It is hard to believe we just crossed Burnside Street in heavy traffic to get here.
We march up and across to the gardens, where things go from wild and natural to beautifully formal.
