I Probably Should Find a New Walk at Work

I can't sit down for long periods of time in a row (I blame the car accidents), so I've been taking walks outside while at work.

Today's walk took me past a very large number of signs that said "Caution: Radiation Contamination." Various areas had been chained off and marked with these signs. There are small sections of the grounds that are marked like this that are islands of unmown weeds within the lawns. There is a parking lot with a four square-foot section cordoned off. Larger radiation areas have been covered with rocks, as landscaping them is apparently impossible. I decided not to get close enough to any of these areas to take decent pictures.

I also saw what is either a hot spring or else evidence of a leaky steam pipe.

My hope was to walk away from the radiation, but every other direction is marked by a lack of sidewalks and an excess of construction.
