Press Your Luck

Lord of the Hills

Lord Hill Park is one I noticed on the map when I did a little post mortem after Monday's swim. You see, I thought I knew my way to the Snohomish Aquatic Center well enough to do it without navigation help from my phone, so I didn't use it. At the point in Lowell where you can either finish heading down the hill toward the riverfront trail, or turn and head South, I should have kept going, but turned. It was quite a while before I knew for sure I went the wrong way. Thankfully it's pretty easy to pull off the road, search for the destination, and get audible directions. I really don't know how we managed before.

I'm glad it happened, though. Lord Hill Park is a neat discovery. Nearly 1,500 acres of trails, just 12 miles from home! After a crazy-busy session of writing tests this morning, I had some lunch and headed out for my first visit.
