I found it really hard to follow the planned route. Definitely seemed to go off trail a number of times. Nevertheless very pretty and classic tourist hike for those interested. Nice cold weather training for a Texas winter.

Good old Central Park drive. Walked home last night after dark and road was pitch black north of the 103 crossover. Flashbacks to the 70’s brought on a strong urge to flee. Told a cop driving through and tonight the lights were back on. Yay! Also complained thru 311, but that was a no go; the rep couldn’t find the park drive on a map. Sigh.

A great walk in the middle of the city! It's mostly paved, but there are gravel paths if you so choose to diverge.

Very scary, thought I was going to be taken in the bushes and never seen again!!!!
