hiking
2 months ago

My first attempt failed because a family brought 2 dogs unleashed which I feared would approach my leashed Pit Bull Terrier, it has happened numerous times in the past while at other parks. So I just did not want to deal with another potential dog fight especially with 2 other dogs. The next attempt was fully successful. The trail was wide and clear passing by freshly lawned fields, ponds, and a tree tunneled pathways. Although, I did need to walk through a stream which led to wet feet for the remainder of the hike and there were 2 additional muddy spots to work through. Considering that the trail is in close proximity to houses, businesses, and a major highway for the most part was a pleasant oasis hideaway with a few reminders of nearby civilization with a little litter to be somewhat expected not necessarily forgivable but not unusual to find in just a few minute areas. Overall it was very nice.
