Jordan River Parkway Trail – Germania Park, Murray, Utah

20140118_115359 Jordan River Parkway Trail – Germania Park, Murray, UtahToday I begin my walk at Germania Park, 5400 South Murray Pkwy Ave (about 1100 W).  It’s a sunny January Saturday, 37 degrees with snow still on the ground. I’m going to first cross the river to take a look at the leash free dog park then I’ll head north.
