|Just starting out my run|
I was about a half hour out on the trail, following the bluff and enjoying the strong wind blowing me around when I came to the campground area and a large field. There in the field was a park ranger. Uh oh. Forgot the dog leash! Um, on purpose, but still, a problem now. The man called me over and scolded me, a bit relentlessly actually, until I said, hey I understand you don't have to keep repeating yourself. He took down my name and number and told me for the fifth time that it was a $87 dollar fine. See I remembered! So I promised to head right back to my car and get the 'ol leash. Then I got lost. For another hour. On the up side, I was able to run for 90 minutes, which was what I wanted. And I didn't have any more run ins with the state park police. Whew.
