Chad was actually in the Valley for a change, for a family event. He had a few hours free on Friday and wanted to do the Preserve, since he really likes it. I have not been there yet, so I agreed to meet him there. Got done with my chores late and then missed the Off Ramp I needed to take on the 202, so I was fairly late. Chad already had 3 miles under his belt by the time I got there.

He met me at the Car, and we visited while he applied Duck Tape to his feet. Apparently, Senility has set in, and he has forgotten that in the Summer, here in the Valley, your feet sweat, even in Sandals.... :o :sweat:

After he got done, he took me on a Tour of the Preserve. Quite a few of the Ponds are dry right now, but one of the Ponds that had Water, also had 95% of the Birds. Major Congregation on that Pond. Tons of Baby Cottontails all over the place as well. It was a nice walk, albeit, humid. I'll go out there sometime when I have a decent Camera with a Telephoto.

Nice little visit with Chad in a very cool Urban Park. Finished up with a cold Dew at the Car... :D

Took a few crummy pictures with my Cell Phone, deleted most, but somehow feel weird not posting any, so you guys get to see just how bad the Camera on my phone is.... :yuck:
