Our nearby reservoir, Lake Murray, has a 6-mile paved walking/running/biking trail that nearly completes a circle around the lake but at the 3 mile mark you hit a fence guarding the dam and have to turn around. It had been a long time since I visited the lake but since it's a nice walk and the rains had ceased for the day I went for a visit with the camera.
A nearly forgotten respite
Clever. I wish I'd had a ball to give
Well look! Balls. Golfer litter. I wrote to Mission Trails Regional Park about this but have not heard back.
This is a drainage that runs along a trail above the road and between the park and the golf course. There are hundreds more up and down stream.
There was a mischievous notion to collect a dozen or so and hurl them back onto a nearby green.
