After I ventured out on my walk yesterday and walked the canal along the park I decided to do some more exploring this morning. I was curious yesterday when I saw several people heading up the hill to the park. The park has been open a couple of years but I have never been there. I decided it was time to check it out.
I walked the main trail of the park which loops almost the entire park. This is the canal I walked yesterday from above on the park trail.
What I am not really used to seeing by us is anything that really looks like the desert. Most places have lots of green and plenty of lush plants. The areas not developed by us are mostly still farms and this time of year are still pretty green. Walking through the park trail I was on the lookout for snakes, not something I even think about normally so close to my house.
This is more what I am used to seeing around us. Green grass and lots of trees and green plants.
After I looped the park and headed back, I decided to stay on the canal for the full length of our sub-division and then loop our neighborhood walk the long way.
Results from my extra long walk:
Yesterday I had to trick MapMyWalk to recognize my route so I could figure out how far I had walked. I started looking for an app for my iPhone and found RunKeeper. It has a lot of options I haven’t even looked at. All I really wanted was to track the time and the mileage. It will post to Facebook and Twitter, let you set up a playlist, integrate with a heart monitor and more.
We made salmon this weekend. We like to grill our salmon on cedar planks. But we have had some trouble recently with one catching fire. I have another recipe I wanted to share. Again we were trying to use what we got in our produce basket and other things we already had and came up with salmon fajitas. This recipe was adapted from a recipe found here.
