Happy Trails: Riverside Park

I've been wanting to crack open this book:

I decided this was the weekend to do it. I was slightly wrong when I judged the season. Summer doesn't officially start until late June. I thought it would be fine because the weather was going to be nice and sunny. What I wasn't prepared for was the mud. Oh, the mud. We ended up doing the Riverside Park Loop here in Cambridge.

It is estimated to be a 4km loop but by the time we got back to the car we were sure we took a wrong turn somewhere. You'll see on the map above a dotted red line. We think we missed a turn and cut across what turned out to be a VERY muddy patch. How muddy? Yeah...

The trail started with a bridge over Speed River. We saw quite a few geese trying to "paddle" upstream - that was amusing.

Ian spotted Mr. Turtle on a log as we were crossing the bridge.

I even snuck in a picture of Ian. "Why are you taking ANOTHER picture?" =P
