Leon Creek Greenway, Bill Radigan Memorial Walk - Monday, March 30, 2015

Monday morning, March 30, Susan and I met to do the 10k Leon Creek Greenway Bill Radigan Memorial Walk. The weather was perfect; about 70 degrees.

This Volksmarch is dedicated to Lt. Col William J. Radigan, Jr. who was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident on September 30, 2014. Bill Radigan was a Volkssporter - Volunteer Extraordinaire and served as the Vice President and the Treasurer of the LoneStar Walkers, AVA-944 as well as an AVA National Headquarters volunteer for the AVA Executive Director. 

As we started walking we couldn't help but notice how formerly brown, dry scrub brush areas were now lush with thick green grass and the trees were leafing out in springtime greenery. Very pretty!

I have yet to see a Texas horned lizard.
Our turnaround point was the Grissom Road Trailhead. We had a snack at the picnic table, used the facilities and headed back the way we came.

Here we are.

The sun came out and the trail had shade!

After our walk we wanted to see "Insurgent" (second in the "Divergent" trilogy), but it was an hour until movie time. We walked across the street and had a wonderful lunch of tenderloin tri-tips over garlic mashed potatoes at Saltgrass Steakhouse. Our tummies were very happy by the time we went to the movie.

Both of us enjoyed "Insurgent." It's pretty dark, but there is good action and good acting. I don't remember all of the things at the end happening in the book. I guess I'll have to re-read it.

Another fun day!
