The OFM slept until late this morning and we got out on a trail later but he managed to get in almost four miles. It was a cool beautiful day with a nice blue sky full of vapor trails and frilly clouds. Unfortunately the clouds were so thin that they did not really show in the attempted photos.
We chose to head out on a different overall route composed of bits and pieces of several trails that intersect and then carry on to other locations.
When we turned onto the golf course loop road the first thing we noticed was the lake on the right was nearly dry. Two days ago it was only a couple of inches down. Now it must be over two feet low. It is all part of the annual Wheeler Lake draw down for reasons we do not recall and are too lazy to look up again.
The walk was going well and then we noticed white stakes here and yonder in this area. As it turns out there is a big cross country high school race in the park this weekend. The last time they ran it here, the OFM got caught out on the trail by the racers. It was interesting but we will stay out of the way this year.
Here is a picture of a part of the path we used this morning for a great walk.
The OFM is ready to get over to the doctor on Wednesday for the exam to decide what the rebuild or whatever is the correct term will turn out to be. We are really hoping to be able to roll by the end of November to where it is nice and warm in the “winter time” normally. You know, where a low of 45F cold is a bad night.
In the meantime everyone get out and try to have tooooo much fun.
