Garth Stairs

Today's adventure took place at the Garth Street Stairs. I realize that most people have seen these stairs, driven past them, or even taken them up or down the mountain, at some point. If not the Garth stairs, then maybe some of the other stairs that scale the escarpment.

Someone has counted, and numbered, the stairs, and I believe that there are around 300. When we were there, there were two guys running up and down..and up..and down. That is physical fitness, my friends. I remember walking up and down those stairs a few times during college - it was no walk in the park. My clearest memories are ones of panting and the urge to vomit. For someone living close to these stairs, or any of the other stairs, it is a great workout opportunity. Who needs a gym membership when you have an out door stair master, fresh air and creeps like me taking your picture while you try to get a good workout. I was getting in the way of the joggers, so I made this adventure a brief one. My quads thanked me.



Another smoggy day in Hammertown.














You can see the numbering in these pictures.




To me, one of the greatest things about Hamilton, is the great amount of green space! Hamilton has so many forests, fields, parks, walking paths...and even outdoor fitness centers like this one.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm
thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours
as of late, but I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent
content as you probably did, the net will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your content seem to be running off
the screen in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a formatting
issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved
soon. Thanks
