Hike 2011.052 -- Central Park, Murray, KY

Short hike on Thursday, August 11, through Murray's Central Park. Much of it is developed as a typical city park, with ball fields, manicured lawns, picnic tables, slides, etc. Other parts are less modified, and the forest can be quite thick in places.

Set inside this park is an 18-hole Frisbee golf course. Holes range in length from about 85 yards on up to 150 yards, with 20-100 yard walks between holes and the next tee. Some are mostly in the open, mowed grass area, while others would require tosses between thick stands of trees. I walked the 18 hole course and also wandered around enough that I hope to have managed three miles of walking.

Here's a picture of a squirrel. Not that big a deal, except squirrels in KY are hard to photograph. They're too used to being hunted, I think. Well, except these city park squirrels, where no hunting is allowed and they probably get plenty of handouts from the locals.
