Here is my walking path. It is a .35 mile, asphalt paved, cul-de-sac, Kilkenny Lane, in Red Bluff, California.  Kilkenny Lane moves in an east-west direction from the front of my home to Highway 99 West.  I practice Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung in the circular area in front of my house shown the foreground of this picture.  I rarely encounter a car on Kilkenny Lane.  I walked this path for fitness and pleasures from 1999 to 2017, then we moved to Vancouver, Washington.
