The walk Rachel went on was organized by Feet First, which led Seattleites on six different walks around our city last week.
Rachel opted for a tour through Pioneer Square and Yesler Terrace, which was led by civil engineers and landscape architects who were helping make design improvements to alleys, parks, and housing in the area. Bonus: She decided to join in after seeing the event in this here newsletter. 🙌
