We arrived around 12:30 and hit the trail at Howe Avenue. It was a very windy day but the trail was pretty much deserted.
We started out nice and slow. I was just out there two weeks ago but when I was running, I never realized the things around me. I saw signs I'd never seen before. There were tons of dirt trails around us so we decided to take a dirt trail. Connor was leading and we had quite an adventure.
On our ride, we counted 16 squirrels, one rabbit and lots of ducks. We stopped at a fishing pier and checked out the ducks and geese.
I have never noticed the Mountain Lions signs before or the number of wonderful parks and playgrounds along the trail. We stopped and played at a playground and finally turned around about 8 miles out.
We stopped to have a snack and I snapped this picture of Connor eating fruit snacks.
OK, not the best picture. I decided to take another:
OK, again, not the best picture. Special needs - helmet and all???
Finally, I got a nice picture.
We ended up riding about 16 miles. We had alot of fun. It was nice to look at the bike trail from a different perspective. It's sad to realize I don't really notice alot of things around me when I'm running. I always thought the bike trail was kind of boring but on Tuesday, I noticed it's beautiful. I just need to look around....
