I drove out to the Rouge Hills area hoping that the Twyn Ridges parking lot, which has been closed for months, might now be open. It isn’t. Plus the entrances to some of the trails have been fenced off. The lot is closed to vehicles and pedestrians to accommodate work to improve access and public safety which includes construction of two new pedestrian bridges over the Little Rouge River.
I continued on and had a walk in the nearby Altona Forest.
A very smart young (40s) friend of mine works for Google and is working on the project linked below.
She and her husband (both engineers) have worked at Google for over a decade in Palo Alto. They’ve now moved back to France.
Our seasons have no fixed returns,
Without our will they come and go;
At noon our sudden summer burns,
Ere sunset all is snow. – James Russell Lowell (1819–91)
