My oldest son, still on holiday break, joined me in walking from Mile Marker 5 back to Mile Marker 4 (and back) on the 22 mile rail converted to a bike path that I’ve been working my way across. (This has become an odd-day thing, having gone on Days Three, Five, and Seven too.)
This section of the trail is my favorite as it is mostly prairie reserve, including some beautiful wetlands. We shared our walk with both hawks and turkey vultures overhead and with several bikers along the trail on this warm January day.
