Right after I took the shots of the little butterflies I posted yesterday, I saw the two ladies in the first picture riding toward me on the path. I was walking at the J.R. Alford Greenway, which encompasses 874 acres of open pasture and forested woodlands with 17.5 miles of trails open to the public for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians from sunrise until sunset. The greenway is located just west of town near Lake Lafayette. It is a Trust for Public Land Project and the property was acquired by the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways and Trails in 2001. It is managed and maintained by Leon County with the assistance of the Friends of the J.R. Alford Greenway. We are finally getting a break from the heat here, for a little while anyway, and I ended up walking over 2 miles. These photos are of the open pasture areas. There are more trails that are wooded and offer views of the lake and I will be showing pictures from those areas and the rest of my walk in the next few days.
