Wednesday evening after work I headed to Turkey Mountain. Much has been happening lately and I can always get my head on straight up on the Mountain.
It has been raining lately so the trails are not as dusty as they were last summer.
There are even some sizeable puddles alongside some of the trails.
I’ve been experimenting with puddle reflections lately. You can really do that during a drouth. The above is one of my favorites so far.
The Westside YMCA runs a day camp on the north side of the mountain. They had spruced up their trail signs. I could hear some loud drumming and yelling going on. I was curious about what was going on but I stayed away.
I did stop and take a pic of their fishing pond though. Nice to see them starting to fill up again.
A previous employer of mine has a pipeline that runs across the mountain. I’m big into connectivity and I’m very familiar with this pipeline and the network it connects to. If I bang it with a hammer (I’d never do that of course it would damage the coating) I can just imagine the sound traveling from here to almost every state in the lower 48 and Canada and also Mexico. I have maps so that I can show you just how that would work. Of course, you would have to put your ears to the pipe and listen very attentively to hear me hammering.
My new trailrunning friend. We ran together for a little bit but I was too slow for him so he waved and was off.
