Continuing my walk along the Fitness and Nature Trail here at the Pima County Fairgrounds. The trail wanders aimlessly through the forest and I upon it do the same. The trail is flat, graded, and easily navigable even with a wheelchair, which at the moment I wish I had.
The Prickly Pear Cactus blossoms are going to be a sight to see when they all start blooming, I just hope I am able to see them with binoculars looking out my window.
Since there are two benches on this exercise challenge you're obviously supposed to sit and rest here twice as long, so it made a great place to finish off my last beer and start to hope that maybe a snake will come along and bite me so I can test out my snakebite kit.

You're supposed to walk on this curvy beam which makes it difficult to stand up and walk straight. But having failed enough roadside sobriety tests I don't need any help falling over while trying to walk straight so I skipped this exercise looking for something more challenging.
I found out its not a good idea to sniff the flowers around here, good thing I brought my first aid kit and needle nose pliers........ It seems I remember that you're supposed to start using your snakebite kit if there's even a chance of getting bit by a snake.
The only thing I could think of you could do here is guess which one of these posts is the longest. Not having a tape measure with me I guessed that it's a trick question and the one on the left is the longest, its just buried deeper in the ground.
Just as I thought I had found a piece of exercise equipment that would challenge me I was disappointed yet again. When I saw this piece of equipment coming up I was ready to knock out a couple hundred chin-ups until I found out that this thing is so badly designed that even someone as tall and muscular as I am was unable to jump up and reach the chin-up bar. Looks like I'm going to have to complain to the administration office..... I wonder if there's a snake hiding under there? Maybe I should prepare just in case.
I'm almost at the end of the trail now and there are no more pieces of exercise equipment to show and since my snakebite kit is completely empty, and I feel powerless to save myself in case of a snakebite, I need to get back to the Arctic Fox and start writing this story up and critiquing the Fitness and Nature Trail, which I will do tomorrow.
