The Low Down:

Right next door to my office   is an Oasis on the edge of the Burbank/Griffith Park border. The fun thing about this park is the “World Trail.”

This “Trail” has an array of exercise stations with instruction on how to use the equipment. I didn’t use it this time but I’m gonna consider using it in the future.  There’s a beautiful pathway that takes you around the circumference of the park. It’s not terribly hard and the terrain is basically flat. I went around 5 times (30 minutes) and going around one time is about .35 miles. Excuse my math skills but I believe that comes out to around a mile total if you DO go around 5 times.

     

 

It was a wonderful, So Cal early evening and the weather was just gorgeous! I had to get in this mini-workout and then drag my dead ass to work. There wasn’t a lot to see but I enjoyed the wooden bridges that were built over the stream. The trees were older and smelled brilliant! The evening had a slight breeze and you could detect the scent of  pine in the air. It was a lovely start to my work day!

  

  

I love the fact that you can see this

Johnny Carson must’ve loved being able to see the park named for him from the sound stage he filmed the Tonight Show on…

I plan on visiting this park frequently now that I have cancelled my gym membership. There’s no excuse NOT to take this enjoyable walk at least a few times a week!
