The parks around here are closing their gates earlier in the evenings because of budget cuts. But Dreamy Draw Park has a bike path that starts from the surface streets so I parked outside the park and just walked on the bike path through the desert while the sun set tonight. It is usually is a busy path, tons of bikes and runners and strollers etc. But tonight, I had the whole place to myself. I only saw 2 people in an hour. It was a perfect temperature, with a pleasant breeze and a beautiful sunset. It couldn't have been a nicer hour.
But then I had to remind myself that I should be a little nervous because I was very, very alone out there. And it was getting dark. And the gates were closed.
But it was just too perfect to worry about that too much.
(Should I worry more??)
(Actually the pictures look a little darker than it really was. I had a flashlight with me, but I got back to my car before I had to use it.)
