Rome may have its celebrated Spanish Steps, but Port Townsend too has its very own Terrace Steps. This passageway of steps on Taylor Street extends from uptown Jefferson Street to downtown Washington Street. These steps may not be so much celebrated as simply convenient for pedestrians that wish to walk the shortest path from the downtown central business district to the uptown residential section.
Seen here at the bottom of the stairway is the Haller Fountain that I posted about yesterday. In pleasant weather this little park and its fountain area is a very popular place for locals and tourists alike to gather, relax and play. For the next few days I plan to post more images of the Haller Fountain and steps.
