Highland Park hike
The temperature was warm. I wish I had brought shorts.
We stopped at a urban yuppie mall for egg sandwiches. There were a lot of soccer moms.
We took a few dog quizzes while walking around. It turns out (e:uchina) is a terrier/dachshund depending on who you ask.
Up at the top of another hill is the Rochester reservoir called Hemlock lake. Water from Hemlock lake flows down to this hill in a creek and is pumped up here. They have a fancy marble pump house and a nice path around the whole lake.
Everyone was on the track when we were walking. A man flying a drone way better than we ever could, a kid possibly spreading ashes on the hill (?! thankfully not in the water, gross), all the dogs you would ever want to spot
The hill has a good view. I wish Buffalo had a steep elevation change somewhere
While we were walking around we noticed all these slides on the ground. At first I thought they were going to be someone's photos but it turned out they were old slides with photos of bacteria and a bunch of presentation text. The best was when (e:paul) found one with e. coli stuck in a pile of dog poop D: ::blech::.
Why did they end up next to a public trash can?
A radio transmission tower at the top of the hill
A secret swing. There was also secret mountain bike trails/ski paths

The quails are so cute. I want one as a pet, that we also could raise for ethical eggs and cuddling. (e:paul) could not eat them.
Sounds familiar... Basra.
As far as I could tell, this was their Delaware Park. It backs up on this giant forested hill in the middle of the city, almost to (e:uchina)'s house. If I were her, I would abandon the apartment and spend all my time on that hill, mountain-man style.

High Falls bridge
First we went to breakfast at a Ayn Rand themed(?!) restaurant called Atlas Eats. The kimchi pancakes were amazing and I drank too much coffee.
We then headed over to the High Street bridge, which seemed to be like a Canalside type district with actual old buildings. It overlooks the Genesee Rivers waterfall and also gives scenic vistas of both a Kodak and Genesee beer factory. I couldn't decide which one was responsible for more toxic products.
I love being in a city that isn't flat. Here is a 360 degree photo sphere I took on the bridge. I want to try it out on (e:paul)'s VR headset. The disembodied butt of (e:terry) and the floating Masumi head make you feel like you're really there.
A Christmas tree of beer.
The most ridiculous thing I have ever seen was this Pepsi machine, hooked up to a generator at the end of the bridge. How could this even make any money? Do people get so exhausted crossing the bridge that they need a cup full of sugar to make it back? Crazy.
I rediscovered some of the fun lens modes on the Note. Mostly useless but kind of cool

Court Street bridge
In the bridge you can climb on all sort of walls and look out over downtown. The car traffic of the bridge echoes above you. The further you go, the darker and drippier the cave gets. I feel like so many awesome events could happen in here.
It reminds me of the Buffalo downtown tunnels that I still want to visit. anyone know a good entrance?
