Why Herbicide?


Adventure Location:

Decatur, Alabama

It was a fairly nice day all day today. It was hot this morning but there was some nice breeze out along the creek trail. So we got in a pretty decent 2.5 miles without any miserable environment mess like too much humidity. It was enough to work up a decent sweat to make the after exercise shower feel really good. Here is the skies we had on the trail to make us feel good.

One new thing we see new on the trail is apparently the bosses in the park are apparently spraying herbicide along the trail for some reason. Here is a picture of where they are doing their spraying.

This land here is flood plain since it is only nominally 1 foot above the design level of the lake and floods a bit a few times each year. Some day we may find out what is going on. In the meantime we will be enjoying what we have as often as possible.

We have been asked for a picture of the Marie Callendar meals we are fond of. Here is tonight's supper. Chicken, broccoli and noodles in a pretty good white sauce. We add a fruit or something to go with the meal and tonight was grapes. The meals run about four dollars. There are about ten different meals that we cycle through. None of them are spectacular but all of them are decently tasty. They all come as frozen meals near 450 calories each.

And there you have it our exciting day on the banks of the Tennessee River.

  1. The park workers may be spraying to keep the weeds and grass cutting down, but they help stop erosion when the area is flooded. Somebody is not thinking this through.
    Having balanced meals, but not overdoing it, is a great way for having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
