Park Closed

We decided to take a short hike this afternoon. After discussing the various alternatives and the conditions of the loco trails we settled on a walk around Centennial Park. We figured that by now the county parks department would’ve cleared the popular 2.5 mile loop around the lake.

We figured that part correctly. What we didn’t figure on was that the park would be closed.
No matter. We soon discovered that we could easily park right along Centennial Lane and walk into the park from there. We were not alone. At two o’clock this afternoon there was a steady stream of people and dogs going in and out of this side entrance.
I still can’t figure out why the park was closed three days after the storm. On the other hand, there were significantly fewer people walking the path today than would be found on a typical Sunday in January which was kind of nice. It was just us and our fellow scofflaws
