|Our walk to the park started on Emerald Dr, a nice, walkable street.|
The kids really enjoyed stomping through the leaves on that beautiful Saturday.
|Coming up to the Wilshire/Brighton Blvd intersection.|
The Wilshire/Brighton Blvd intersection is not a very pleasant place to be... I've written about it before. We remained undaunted, and continued our way to the park.
|Swenson Park is a great place in Mound!|

One really gets a good sense of what makes a "place" in a city when you are moving on foot. You see all the homes and places, streets and retaining walls, gardens and yards you miss otherwise. You run into friends and acquaintances and pet puppies, and wave to people who are raking leaves. After a while I start feeling sad for those who never take the time for activities like this. We enjoyed the park for a good hour, and we headed home.
