STAIRWAY TO ...

Saw these colorful steps in an alley off the main street. Seems like they have been this way for quite awhile. Rather nice, however. Not what you would expect to find in an alley.

  6. Now I've got Neil Sedaka's Stairway to Heaven running through my head. After all, where else would these rainbow stairs go?

  7. Dorothy could have used these to get back and forth to Oz, skipping the whole 'riding the tornado' experience.

  14. At some time in the past someone went to a lot of trouble to paint these steps so you could take a photo! They look unattended at the moment, though. And it might behoove you to find out where they lead. And what were you doing in that alley in the first place?

    Dontcha know alleys can get cats like you in trouble?
