A Walk in the Park

Both yesterday evening and today, Lisa and I had enough time to take this walk through John Neal Park in Lyons, which is across the river from Mehama. As you can see from the map, this is a 5.4 km loop, and that's a pretty good walk.

This park has a bunch of ponds and streams through it. There are ducks, geese, what I think might have been a Blue Heron, and several more interesting things. Yesterday evening, we spotted two or three deer across a stream from where we were walking, and I've seen what I think may be a beaver in one of the ponds. No sign of the deer or beaver this afternoon, however.

All of the nature walk is a nice counterpoint to the frustrations of trying to get things to work on Lisa's old Panasonic CF-27 under Win2000.
