It was a very nice start to the day!
At noon, I tried checking out the cemetery, but the DPW was there making all kinds of noise so that was a bust. I stopped at Gryncel Park next, but someone else was sitting in their van there, so I didn't walk there either. By this time, I was almost out of time but I did walk for 15 minutes at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land. I just did the loop trail on the first hill and was surprised at how much I saw in such a short distance.

After work, I returned to BHCL for a real walk!

At the end of the work day, I looked out back and saw a little red fox taking a nap in the weeds.
