I had one of those conversations over pumpkin pie and ice cream yesterday. It was during half time of one of the games.
I used to run track, back when, and remain, charitably , somewhat interested in running. That is to say, I’d rather watch than participate. However. . .
One of my part time guests (meaning one of the folks to drop over for coffee and cake) profess he was a runner – read, jogger.
He was carrying-on about the various areas he’d covered in his hobby. I asked him if he’d ever jogged any part of the Flint Hill Nature Trail.
From the look on his face he probably thought I was either changing the subject or trying to trap him into a mis-statement of some sort. I hastened to clear the matter, somewhat, and informed him it is part of the ‘other’ subject we’d been talking about, which was the rails to trails program, of which I’ve written before.
The Flint Hill Nature Trail is, generally, a biking trail covering some 117 miles of prairie and tall grass lands of Kansas, although, because of the gravel rail beds being the trails surface, they are suitable for runners or hikers.
A tourists hiking trail.
