Oh What a beautiful morning.......

I am so blessed to live in Liberty. What a wonderful little town. The city has many parks and trails. There is one trail only about 1/2 mile from my house. I took the dog for a walk this morning. We walked to the trail and then down the trail for about 1/2 an hour. Then we came home. So we walked for about an hour. It was so beautiful. The trail is wooded on both sides with a nice path. There is running water throughout the trail. The sound of running water is very soothing. I took my Ipod for tunes, but decided against listening to them. I just enjoyed the sounds of nature this am. Mitzy was very excited to get to go for a walk again. I thought she would run and hide, but she was falling all over herself trying to get out the door. She is doing really good on the walks too. She isn't barking like she used to at everyone including pets. It is fun to go for walks with her. Although squirrels still get to her. She wants to chase them down. I saw so many beautiful birds today. It was a very enjoyable walk. The only problem, I had no idea how far I had walked. I looked online at the city's website for trail info, no luck. So I called and they have a map with mileage. I went and got a couple. One for me and one for the family, they like to bike ride the trails. I think I put in about 3 miles of walking according to the trail I was on and the mileage from my house. Not a bad little jaunt. Will have to do it again soon. :)

If you are talking about the Westbory/Canterbury trail (a nice trail!), I agree that it is tough that there isn't a trail map with mileage. When I go to and from my house and use this trail, I use mapmyrun.com to figure out far I have gone. If you use the "hybrid" or "sattelite" map view, you can see the trail and plot your points (the trail isn't displayed in the normal map view). It is cumbersome, but gives me the mileage, which I really want to keep track of. I now know it is 1.5 miles from my house to the parking lot - so I know how far I have gone and can enjoy the birdsong!
