Sunny day, keeping the, clouds away

I was originally in a bit of a hurry this morning, so I went down to Lowell. It's really close and the paved trail's not very long, so it's easy to do it quickly. There are gravel trails there as well, but this time of year there are lots of mosquitoes all around those, so I tend to stay on the paved parts. Of course, now that I think about it, during the winter I also tend to stay on the paved parts because of the darkness. I need to remember my bug spray and explore around the gravel parts again next time I'm there, it's been a while.



There was a wisp of a cloud in the sky. Just one. But I set up the camera at the new spot I found by the water and went on my merry way. I normally like to include a loop around the boat launch parking lot to add some distance, but the gate was open and there was a truck parked there, so I skipped it. The view looking up the hillside as I headed West again was really nice.

This is one of the smallest snails I've ever seen. So small, it was really hard to get a photo of. But since there's nothing in the photo for scale, you can't really tell.

Pretty squares.

Today's awesome walk, 4.95 miles in 1:45, 11,250 steps

I almost didn't save the time lapse to Instagram because not much happened, but I really liked the contrail, so I uploaded it.



I didn't run out immediately after my shower like I planned because I realized I could do a lunch for a future Live in Everett post near the stores I wanted to go to. Lunch was good, but the stores were annoying crowded. I really prefer to shop early. Crowds always annoy me, but they're even worse in stores because of the aisles. Oh well, I got some good stuff.
