From there I roll around behind the zoo. Sometimes the giraffes are out. I always say "hello giraffes." Dogs, cows and giraffes rate a hello. Past the zoo a multi-use path encircles part of the park. It can make a fascinating study in human stupidity when it's crowded. Although the path is very well marked with one way bicycle symbols marking the bike side, two way pedestrian symbols marking their side and a separation zone, people just don't get it.

Hey cool ride!

I spent more spring days than I can count at the fly doing nothing and recovering from the night before, visiting my now wife when she was in college at Tulane.
And the Audubon Park pic made me shudder because I still remember the death marches I went on that were sold as 'a nice run in the park'. Running is for the devil.
