This park is a great place to crank out some miles when you need to stretch your legs a bit. I just wouldn’t recommend getting in the water unless you are very confident in your immune system.
Along the river are a lot of those little blink-and-you-miss-them towns. You know the kind that have a sign saying, “Welcome,” then 10 feet later one saying “Thank you for visiting.” They’re charming, usually hiding some kind of gem – either a great locally-owned shop or restaurant, or someone with a great life story. One thing you can count on is they always have a story to tell.

It was a reminder that no matter where you begin in life, you never know where you may end up.
