Maya came along for the ride and afterwards we went for a city hike through McIntire Park (former golf course) and along the trail that parallels the parkway. We made about 5.5 miles from it and I think there's still more area there to be explored on another day. We also caught a couple of tantalizing glimpses of segments of the Rivanna River Trail in some wooded areas. I've only done one segment of that trail in Charlottesville and there's a lot more to do.
|They didn't always agree about which way to go, but on a|
well-defined trail they walked together very nicely.
|It was a city walk, but it went through some open and wooded|
areas and we did spot two deer.
|I've seen this piece of city art from the 250 by-pass, but never|
knew that it's installed in a downed tree trunk.

|This was the area where the Rivanna River Trail crossed our|
path. I will go back and find this again some day.
|We still avoid meetings with other dogs, but at least Theo and Maya are sociable enough to take|
on a walk through the city without much worry.
