The Trail Of Terror In Pilot Knob

787 words - 4 pages

It was a beautiful Saturday around 3:30 p.m. Me being an avid runner, I thought the temperature was absolutely perfect for a jaunt through Pilot Knob. I hop out of my vehicle with anticipation of a relaxing jog, and I walk my way to the serene trail. Little did I know I was on my way to the trail of terror.
It was about 3:15, and I was set on going for my jog. I grabbed my ipod and blue water bottle, and was set to go!

I didn’t want to continue my running pace towards them, in fear of them charging...
