NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS
– Love Your Park fall service day. Good fun trail building with FOW in the Andorra Natural Area.
– Huh. Lots of quartzite on the Yellow Trail between the Covered Bridge and Cathedral Run. Cool.
– Phone died with 49% power. Sure it was cold, but that’s some BS, Apple.
– Instead of following the Yellow Trail all the way up past Henry on the Park apartments and across Wises Mill Road, followed what looked like an unmarked trail that turned out to be a deer trail, ended up off trail for 30 minutes in the middle of the world’s largest overgrown thicket of thorns of all sizes.
– Took extra long bubble bath to eliminate presumed thorns and ticks.
– Ran into the esteemed Dave Bower from Parks and Rec on Forbidden Drive.
– As I made the observation that the gate at Valley Green Inn was open AGAIN (on a Saturday no less), some ahole in a Porsche comes flying down Valley Green Road doing at least 35 into an area obviously heavily populated by pedestrians. When Walnut Lane Bridge closes for repair, this gate MUST be monitored.
