Today we walked Lake Johnson (proper), the paved 2.6 mile trail around the flood control lake. As soon as we started walking, my eyes started itching and my nose started running. Despite the rain all day yesterday and the storm overnight, there is plenty of pollen still in the air. The wind was blowing in gusts but the temperature was around 70. It was a beautiful day and almost shorts weather. We walked from the Lake Dam Rd. parking lot toward the boat house and even with a quick pit stop there, made it around the lake in 55 minutes. We saw where the trail spur at the dam crosses Lake Dam Rd. (Upper Walnut Trail) and will have to walk that next time.
