Urban Hike: Thames to Overlook Park & Return (via Daniel Pratt Elementary in A.M.); Tue., 7/25/2017; 05:14-06:10CDT & 19:24-20:00CDT
Distance: 2.8 (1.6 and 1.2) Difficulty: Easy Rating: 4.5/5.0 (both)
Conditions: Just getting light on morning hike. Mild temps. Relatively quiet. Evening hike: mostly cloudy (just dodged a summer thundershower), light breeze, milder temps.
Had to divert through Daniel Pratt Elementary School grounds on the morning hike due to darkness. We had the park largely to ourselves. No cats seen today. Nice way to start the morning.
This evening we enjoyed cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and a gentle breeze. Thunder could be heard in the distance. There were a few people at the park but nothing distracted Gracie. The cicada choir was especially vociferous near the entrance to the park.
