I went down to California Crossing where the bigger park is. DORBA had closed the trail for biking, but it was fine for jogging / hiking. I had a pretty good time of it and got quite a bit of trail running time in. Much of my run was spent walking on the grassy/leafy edges of the otherwise muddy trails. It wore me out. I don't know how far I ran/hiked, but I'm guessing it was about 5 miles for the day.
At one point on my walk, I noticed through the tress the outline of some large buildings in the distance. I realized that one of them was my office building in Irving. It's strange that I've been working and living so close to all of this wildlife and didn't realize it. I guess I also didn't realize that Tom Braniff connected all the way over to California Crossing, which connects with Riverside in Las Colinas. I also wasn't aware of how the Trinity river snaked around that area. Strangely small world. That flood plane had been a black spot in my mental map of the city for a very long time.
