Slug city

It rained throughout the night, so I decided before I even got out of bed that I'd walk somewhere paved, and the Lowell riverfront trail jumped to the top of the list because I generally go to the tank farm on Thursdays and Lisa might come this week. I adjusted my departure time to take the later sunrise into consideration, and started my walk at about 6am. That place is one of the ones I find a bit creepy in the dark, so I waited a little bit to put my earbuds in.


Thankfully the creepy gives way to calm rather quickly.


Unsurprisingly, they've added a fence blocking off that huge area they recently cleared. Also unsurprisingly, it's a pointless fence that you can just walk around the side of.


The sky was overcast enough that I didn't see any of the sunrise or much color, though I could make out a band of pink when I got to the Northern section of the trail.


Lots of progress on the new houses.


And so many slugs and snails. I'm always impressed by my ability to enjoy the scenery while also watching where I'm going so I don't crush them.

Today's awesome walk, 4.46 miles in 1:32, 9,935 steps

I didn't get out as much as I'd have liked this long weekend, so the plan so far is to head up to Marysville for lunch and to see Don't Breathe, and stop at WinCo before heading back in. Plans are, of course, subject to change.
