have budget, must spend?
January 18, 2012
Draper city has an awesome trail network. They also have some pretty nice trailheads.
Here’s the latest one, just up the street from me, which is really more of an overlook than a trailhead:
And when I say “overlook” I really do mean, OVERlook.
As in, you must look over a fence in order to see the view. It’s almost like a mat that has conclusions you JUMP to.
So, what? Did they finish the benches and drinking fountain and signage, and then check the books and realize they hadn’t spent the whole budget yet?
“Say, do you know what would really finish off this spectacular overlook? A fence that not only doesn’t keep anything out or in, but also is constructed so close to the benches and at such a height that it actually obstructs the very view passersby have stopped to enjoy.”
Maybe a good book instead.
