W.H.A.T.?


With the blessing of the city, a volunteer group called the Willits Healthy Action Team delineated several walking routes through town, marked at key junctures with how many steps you are along the way. The feet indicate the direction to proceed. A Zen Monday offering.

I find that so useful and wish they ahd more signs on walks because I am the queen-of-getting-lost.

Simple and clever idea. Reminds just a bit of the Freedom Trail in Boston, which is a continuous red painted line taking you from historic site to historic site.

I find those odd things always very nice in a city. Shows its not all anynomous.

Nathalie said...

Are you allowed to take the trails in reverse direction ???

Excellent idea.

Thanks for your notes. Yes they are real.
The store serves two kind of pomegranate juice; sweet juice with sugar and acerbic juice without sugar. I like the second one.

I wish they could do something in my town. I started walking about a month ago at the local park. I am up to 4 miles a day, but it sure would be nice to walk something different. I tried to drive around and measure distances, but I never write it down and then forget. Oh well, neat picture and great idea.

I love to have those here, I get lost easy!

Hee! I think that's a great idea. Get your exercise and tour the city together.

At first I wondered what might have climbed out storm drain...

This is such a great idea to encourage people to get out and walk!

Kelly, and my first thought was, Who can walk 7,000 steps through town barefoot? ;^)

Thank you all for investigating this post. It's my first nod in the direction of "Zen Monday" as exemplified by Petrea at Pasadena Daily Photo. Having said that, I know that she is like me, who finds it hard enough to just do the monthly theme day discipline. Hope I haven't killed it by naming it. ;^)

Very good! As Chuck said, 'simple and clever idea'!

What a simple yet brilliant idea. I could so do with something similar in Athens. I also agree with Ineke, it does make a city more personable. Great photo.
