Saturday, we took a springtime walk at Cleary Lake Regional Park. It was super crowded, but we really wanted to go there. Normally we avoid such places on weekends, but not this time. Luckily there was a lot of space to spread out and pass people to keep social distancing rules in place.
It was the day before Easter and the Easter snowstorm. The temperature was in the low sixties and it felt so hot to us! Before we went for our walk, we stopped at a deserted park to practice some nose work. A walk after makes for a nice reward.
We didn’t take many photos because there were so many people and dogs around it was hard to find a quiet spot for a nice picture. The trail we took was 3.35 miles long and we did that in just over an hour. Mom likes to walk fast. Swimming would have been nice, but Mom said no swimming…bummer.
Sometimes we went off the beaten path into the woods for some shade which felt really nice! We all agree that we need to come back here for a walk on a weekday after the lockdown is lifted so there won’t be so many people. The Cleary Lake Dog Park is right here too, and we always enjoy going there.
Along the route there were a lot of benches to take a rest on, but most of them were in the sun.
Here is a photo of the trails they have. Naturally, we took the big, long one all the way around the lake. It was a lot of fun, and we both crashed out when we got home! Can’t wait to do it again in the future when it isn’t so busy.
