Three times is NOT a charm!

Sunday, August 25, 2013

We tried to bike to the northern trailhead of the Katy Trail and still have not made it. The first time we tried, we ran through a patch of deadly invisible thorn and ended up having to hitch a ride back to our car. The second time we tried, the trail was clocked by tons (and I mean it literally) of hard, blackish sludge that was deposited when the Mo river flooded over the trail. Yesterday, I just couldn't make it the last 5 miles. (In my defense, I had been at work until 12 midnight the following night and we had to shop for a family barbeque. I was just beat!.)

Today we are headed in a different direction. We are starting at the MO Botanical Garden (Shaw's Garden). The garden is open to walkers before it's open to the general public, and hubby and I plan to do some power walking. There is a multi-cultural festival and Tower Grove Park, so we'll visit it if the hot weather doesn't kick the air out of our sails.

Have a great Sunday! What are you doing for fun?

    Never give up on the Katy Trail. Someday you'll make it.
We went to our lake and it got too hot to fish.

    Sorry you haven't been able to do the Katy trail, but at least St. Louis does have lots of interest alternatives.
