Lafayette Reservoir, redux

The lower, paved trail at Lafayette Reservoir: pretty easy going.

It’s not quite as flat as I suggested last time—it doesn’t follow the edge of the lake, so it does have some gentle ups and downs—but it’s easy and short. Around 2½ miles, and we hiked it in under an hour. A more strenous hike would combine it with one or more segments of the Rim Trail.

Benjuthula makes short walks longer by taking smaller steps without increasing his stride frequency.
I think that's called "mincing".
Well he'd rather mince than extend his stride to accommodate extras from the "Rim Trail".
