Earlier this week I went with Z to a park
to hike around with my camera while he ran.
The interesting thing about this particular park
is that it sits up on top of several bluffs,
so you have a panoramic view of the mountains
to the east, and the oil fields stretching out to the north.
But there is also a river and canal that run
directly below the bluffs with a running trail,
and there are dirt paths
all along the bluffs that lead down to the water.
So you are left with an unusual combination of nature & industry
not typical (in my previous experience) of a park setting.
