Spring Creek Forest Preserve – 02/18/17

Spring Creek Forest Preserve is in Garland, north of Dallas.  The walk registration/start was at the preserve entrance.  The walk was an out and back on concrete paths and natural surface trails through the forest and along the banks of Spring Creek.  Because of this I had lots of opportunity to take pictures of the other walkers.
