Two Rivers Park 1/1/2009

I decided to start 2009 with a trip to Two Rivers Park. It was clear, sunny, and cold this morning so I wait until 9 to get started hoping the birds felt the same way. Luckily there was little or no wind. As I often do, I walk northish along the backwater and then into the grassy field on the north side of the main trail and then to the horse trail. Before long I found that flooded and frozen for that matter. I decided I didn’t want it that bad and turned around. I left the park after 2 hours with a decent start on the new year.
