Unless streets are canopied by trees, they don’t necessarily have a shady side to walk on. My early morning walks need to be north/south. The sun strikes down east/west routes like a flaming bowling ball. There is no place to hide.
North on Woodbine to the O’Connor Bridge was a safe bet. I got my 10,000 steps comfortably and enjoyed some views, to boot.
Commuters can’t really see what they are missing from their car windows, but some folks on Glenwood Crescent enjoy it all the time.
Looking for a view of the bridge that I had not seen before, I wandered up Glenwood and found an opening in the trees.
For future reference, there appears to be a way to get down to the creek, from the top of the bridge. These stairs are on the east side, near the Glenwood crosswalk.
