Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good evening to you, wherever you may be...
I am The Mad Macedonian! Writer, Blogger, Poet, Humorist, Cyclist, Walker, Photographer, Cat Lover, Genealogist, and more!
It's day 4 of the 2011 Sit Spot Challenge, and I'm getting close to nature in middle of Huntington Beach, right in the heart of Orange County.
If you missed the start of this adventure, then check out this post, and follow the link at the end.
Yesterday, required us to make like Lewis & Clark, and make a map of the area around our Sit Spot. ;-D
We had to walk 100 paces in each direction, North, East, South, and West, and make note of something interesting about this.
That was easy enough to do.
As for what kinds of vegetation, and trees, and soil, I couldn't say.
There are both paved, and dirt, trails all throughout the park, & a huge Lake.
If there is a site that gives this information I havn't found it. ;-D
With Interconnecting trails, restrooms, a cafe, and many picnic tables, and park benches through out, and major streets to the west, & east, it's impossible to get lost in Centrl Park. ;-D
To the north of The Amphitheatre one crosses the paved trail, & enters a narrow dirt path into the trees.
To the east one heads into the grass, & brush, & comes up against a tree. ;-D
To the south one walks acrss the stage, & up the steps to above the stage, and across the grass to some trees.
From there, to the west, is a glimpse of some parking, and the Central Library.
To the west, beyond the paved trail, is the SE shore of the Lake, and one can approach it much to the annoyance, amusement, or just plain indifference of the Ducks nearby. ;-D
Mapping all this took a bit more than 20 minutes, but it was interesting. ;-D
