156 Steps

From the bottom to the top, it's one hundred and fifty six steps. That's right.  156.  I counted them.  And somehow I managed to keep count while gasping for air after trying to run up this plight of stairs. 

Next time you're in downtown Juneau, check out this little cardio gem - the secluded alley up Decker Way to Gastineau Avenue.  Try to get all the way to the top, whether it be in one minute or one hour. You won't be disappointed.
