Nature Trail @ Idle Hour Park

 
*****
It was a beautiful day on Saturday and we headed over to Idle Hour Park to get some fresh air and exercise. 
Idle Hour Park has two trails, the nature trail and the lake loop. This is the beginning of the nature trail.
Each trail is roughly a mile in length and on this day both were well used. You can bring your dog with you on the nature trail, but he's not allowed on the lake loop. They must have had a problem in the past with people not cleaning up after the dogs. However, the geese and ducks leave evidence of the their passing all over the place. Seriously, it's like running a an obstacle course.

What a gorgeous place to spend a few hours. We've got something like it at Silver Springs State Park. Great fun. I remember the Canadian geese at Excelsior Park in Minneapolis...they made such a mess, you could barely walk within 100 yards of the water!

This is a lovely shot, Barb. I especially like the shadows falling across the path!

This reminds me of my walking trail in Mt. Brook. I love the 3 mile trek. I've had heel problems and not been there for several months. Hopefully soon!
