Balmy Walk With Village Creek Indian Ghosts Perplexed By An Odd Sign

A lot of people had the same idea I had today. That being that these suddenly almost balmy temperatures presented an excellent opportunity for a salubrious aerobic endorphin inducing visit to Arlington to exercise with the Indian Ghosts who haunt the Village Creek Natural Historic Area.

Along with the Indian Ghosts I was a bit haunted by that which you see in the photo.

Previously, whilst mountain biking, when I would zip at high speed across the dam bridge that crosses Village Creek, I would zip up the trail that had been worn in the short knoll you see here, facilitating making contact with the paved trail at the top of the knoll.

A bulldozer has pretty much obliterated the well worn trail. And the sign you see at the top of the knoll, with a close up view below, has been added to where the trail used to be.

As you can see, the sign is telling Ghost Whisperers to USE SIDEWALK, with a an additional message on the sign telling bikers to keep off.

I fail to see how that trail that had been worn on the knoll did harm enough to warrant going to the bother and expense of installing this sign. Particularly when you consider the ironic fact that a bulldozer made an actual mess, the likes of which the well worn path never made.

Very perplexing......
