Although far from pristine, there is a little wilderness here.
I had the park to myself this early but as soon as the sun rose, I met the ever-present dogs and their handlers. This is a pleasant way to meet dogs – they are so happy to be out and usually their handlers are too! I talked to one man this morning who was curious about my photography. He told me to be sure and photograph the red trees across the road. In addition to the offices, this park is surrounded by hundreds of condos and apartments.
I have a much different feeling for these little hidden areas now from the one I see in my car as I drive by!
