Walk This Way

Our plans tonight weren't special, but they were new to us.

First we had dinner at Fox's Pizza Den. Our East Coast style pizza Supreme pizza was good, and we brought enough home to eat for lunch tomorrow.

Afterwards we went to Bluebird Park in Ellisville to walk. After we got out of the car we couldn't find a park map, so we looked around and saw a sign that indicated a "nature trail" and decided to follow it. I've not really explored the park before, but it has a lot of activities crammed into the part we were in. In addition to the nature trail, there was a fitness trail and a disc golf course.

I don't know if if we missed a turn or if the name just changed, but all of a sudden we were on something called the Klamberg Trail, which was quite hilly. We had this part of the trail to ourselves, and it was easy to pretend we were far from civilization. The trail ended at a subdivision; we spent a while walking through it, then turned around and backtracked to the car.

After we got home, I did a little research to find out where we had been. Turns out all the Ellisville parks are connected by a trail system that's seven kilometers long. If we'd known where to turn in our subdivision walk, we would have been well on our way to the next park.

I sense another walking adventure brewing...
