I was going to talk about the path-bridge over Sligo Creek that was closed. It's just upstream from the hospital. I had to back-track a bit, but since Sligo Creek Parkway is closed to cars (for no obvious reason), I had a very nice ride after the back-track. Aside from that one bridge closure, the path was muddy and/or sandy in spots, but rideable from Park Street all the way to East-West Highway.
I might have mentioned that there weren't any bridges out on the Northwest Branch (from Amherst upstream to University Boulevard), but that would have only been because instead of bridges, the path rides right through drainage ditches. The ditches were full of pretty deep mud. But I did see a big turtle; he was easily a foot in diameter.
Ok. So nevermind.
