In search of new places to walk

...and we found this little gem in Davis, about 10 miles from home:

The Davis Arboretum, about 4-5 miles of walking paths that wind through redwood trees, native plants, and water. Some of it is paved, some is dirt path, but it's a nice change from the outlet mall.

We only did about 2 miles of it, just to check it out. We might have explored further but it was hot, the Spouse Thingy is still nursing a sprained ankle, and I'm not quite 100% yet.) I did get a flu shot yesterday, hoping to hedge my bets against getting further cooties in Atlanta.)

We also walked around downtown Davis a little, and for flat terrain it's also a nice change. I could easily rack up 5-10 miles just wandering around there. Plus, it has the added bonus of dodging all those teenagers on bikes that attend UCD. And there are a lot of bikes zipping around Davis.

I can train on walking and flexibility. It's a win-win :)

Next week we're heading back for San Francisco, so that the Spouse Thingy can witness the glory of the hill leading up and past the Cliff House, and if that doesn't kill him, we might wander into Land's End and try to not get lost.

You may now start your betting pools on just how lost we will get...

Epic iPhone auto spell
grainy = training

Anywho - Emi suggests you walk Little Sister and Big Mama at the Lagoon Valley Park.
