Sunday April 10. My favorite little local park is Deep Run Park, a county park about seven miles from my house. I often go there to run. There is a great two mile circuit - 1.8 miles actually but I usually add some little spurs to bump it up - that included a few steep grades and a lot of variety. I enjoy people watching there as I run or walk along. You see all races, many national origins, all ages - everyone just getting along and enjoying life, which in my view is how it should be. There are also a lot of dogs, and it cool to see them with owners. So this past Sunday, I went there to walk four miles and see if I could see some wildlife, which I did: turtles! Here are some photos from my walk:
This looks like a slider of some kind:

My vision is to describe hikes that I have taken. These will be sporadic, so if you like this blog, you may want to subscribe. If a lot of time goes on between hikes, then maybe I will write something about hiking in general, or describe an older hike from days gone by.
