Urban Hike: Overlook Park, Sat., 7/22/2017 07:45-08:30CDT
Route: Thames to Overlook Park via Irma return via Jay St.
Distance: 1.2 miles Duration: 45 min Difficulty: Easy Rating: 4.5/5.0
Conditions: Quite warm & muggy even at 07:45 this morning. Heavy dew. Yard sale on upper Thames made for more than usual traffic on Thames. (Gracie does not like traffic!)
Since we have work planned around the house today, I elected to take Gracie on an Urban Hike/Frisbee Play to Overlook Park. We are certainly in summer -- temperatures are very warm as soon as the sun comes up. Humidity is oppressive (what's new in Alabama during the summer?). I did not work Gracie long or hard, letting her walk around the park and then playing frisbee off-leash for a little while. She drank some water but seemed to want to play IN the bowl and get the water ON herself. (Can't say that I blame her for that.)
Overlook Park is convenient and well maintained. (Thank you City of Prattville.) Gracie enjoys going here and running. It is well-used however and not always suitable for Gracie to be off-leash.
Thank YOU, LORD, for this beautiful day and this Hiking Buddy!
