Last week, I went for a short walk on part of the Discovery Trail, a paved trail that crosses our town from west to east. It follows Burnt Bridge Creek which starts just east of Vancouver Lake and goes as far as 89th Ave presently. . . they keep adding to it as funds are available.
Signs like this are present to make sure that the walker, jogger, and biker knows that they are still on the right trail.
This time, I took the bus over to 4th Plain, a little east of Grand Boulevard and began my trek west towards home. It has been awhile since I walked the whole trail and is much nicer during the spring and summer months when plants are in bloom and berries are ripe for nibbling. BUT come cooler weather, I still need exercise - so taking just a portion of the trail is best for me now.
All along, there are benches to rest with scenic views to photograph like this. I think that following the creek is a great idea as it encourages me to keep walking but to also pause for a break to view its tranquility.
