First, I hiked all the way to the top on the Eastern slope and did a loop near the Boeing recreation center, catching part of the sunrise while I was up there.
Some of the trees I saw up there made me wonder if we're going to have an early Fall.

No matter how many times I go that way, I always get confused by the loop that goes around the large bike stunts area, so today I finally decided to climb up the shortcut I found into it, exit the normal way, then figure out why I always end up where I started even though I never think I'd passed the path from the other direction. It all makes sense now. A path that I always look at and think it goes to the ballfields doesn't go directly there. It's part of the loop, and then the exit path branches off that. I also managed to find a path I hadn't seen in a while again today. It's rather useless, though, as it leads you out of the gulch and onto an access road people are specifically not supposed to walk on. Good to know about in an emergency, I suppose.
I got home, finished a bunch of work stuff and submitted it, and wanted nothing more than a nap. But I also needed lunch, and knew I wouldn't fall asleep if I was hungry, so I went to the sketchy buffet for a quick lunch. I love that they have pinwheels alongside the sushi and always have to get one.
Once I got back, I had a really good 40-minute nap with the CPAP, and felt so much better. Then I checked the Utopia station to see what was playing, and it was still Utopia! But an annoying message was flashing saying a Garth Brooks station was premiering there in a month. Because that's what the world really needs. Oh well.
