Trout Lake > Booties

This is a man made lake.

It is located in John Henry Park.
Its in a pocket of low land, pretty much at sea level.

Today the path around the lake is flooded.
I was too sleepy to notice, and I rode directly into bottom bracket height water.

My booties tried.
They tried to repel the water, but it crept in from the bottom.
Slowly, I felt the arches of my feet get wet, then the toes.

Poor Booties.

On a related note, the smell of my shoes and gloves drying by my space heater is less than pleasant.
