Last week while the kids were going in all different directions, I had a chance to explore a local nature center.
The paved trails were a bit scary with all the geese on them. They all hissed at me as I tried to get by them.
The the unpaved trails were nice. Much better marked (and wider!) than the trails I ran Ouachita Switchbacks on.
Since it was already mid- morning when I got there, it heated up fast and I ended up walking and running the trails. But, it was just what I needed.
Afterwards, I got to sit quietly sipping my coffee and reading.
