Figuring out my Oddities Walk

I have often thought about offering a personal guided tour of my Fort Bragg Oddities Walk brochure but I had never actually walked the complete route in one "sitting".  I was curious as to how short a walk I could make it while still including all the "Oddities".  Saturday I gave it a try and used my GPS to record my route and distance.  I included all the tie-down rings, Glass Beach, out to the middle of the Pudding creek trestle, Wall Street, the Boat House, the Donnor Party folks, "Shooting" the Vortex and even tossed in a stroll through Otis Johnson park.  End results. 6.1 miles in 2 hours and 15 minutes.  Perfect!  I'm going to see if the MCLandLopers are interested in giving it a try.  That is the distance and time frame they usually do.

Near Glass Beach.

A great variety of houses along the way.  Remember this house being repainted last Fall?
They chose a dark smoky purple trim.  Great touch!

And guess what!  More evidence of Spring coming!

Along with Spring Showers!

On a nice day this could be a lot of fun.  We'll see.
