Heading north from Winchester Park in Murray, Utah. It’s January and the restrooms are even open, impressive.

Winchester Park in Murray, Utah is well maintained with a pretty pond, ducks and geese, a playground for the kids, restrooms and picnic tables.

Great tree-house tree!

This is the second birdhouse like this I’ve seen along the trail. Think it’s a science project?

5400 South rest stop with restroom, drinking fountain (weather permitting) and picnic pavilion. I’ll turn around here for now and head back home.
