Greetings to all! It's me, Mags! Our internet woes have been sorted out thankfully (way to go, Dad!), so I thought I'd fill you in on the rest of our Linear Trail walk from Easter Sunday! We'll do Wordless Wednesday on Thursday. Anyway ...
The Linear Trail goes ALL over our town, hooking up with other trails here and there. We definitely could walk to part of the Linear Trail from our house, but we drove out to walk the route we chose on Sunday.
|"Look to our left, Ragnar!"|
"It's the Big Blue River!!!"
This part of the trail runs along the Big Blue and then the Kansas River, so it's very pretty in parts! It also runs behind the train tracks, behind the mall and lots of the more industrial area of town, so that part isn't too scenic. We'll stick to the pretty parts!
Close to where the Big Blue turns into the Kansas River, there is a kayak launch point. We went down to check it out:
|"See any kayakers, Ragnar?"|
"No ... I might hear some geese, though ..."
Geese might be even better than kayakers. I made a mental note to be on the lookout for goose poop.
We also got to go under an old trestle bridge:
"Yeah! I like this!"
So it starts as sort of a regular trail (where we saw two coyotes, by the way!), then runs along the levee. Frankly, once we got past the Water Treatment Plant, it wasn't too scenic, so Mom didn't take many pix until we got back to that bridge:
|"Check it out, Mags!"|
"Glad there isn't a train going over it! That would be L-O-U-D!"
