NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS
– Two women walking TEN dogs off leash on the White Trail (which is used by mountain bikers) near Rex Avenue skewed the off leash numbers here.
– Rex Avenue itself a mess — aftermath of a tiki party included tons of red solo cups and two tiki torches.
– Lots of trash on the steep hill below the indian statue; trash grabber made for great hiking pool scrambling down the hill on the fallen leaves.
– Had a nice chat with Kerry, a 60ish man taking photos of mushrooms and wearing a Google Glass. He said he was really excited at first about the potential the device presented, but that the experience has largely been negative because of people’s reactions to it. I asked him if our conversation was being recorded. He said it was not and I would see the red “recording” dot if it was.
– Big pile of fishing trash along bank above Covered Bridge.
