Easy Walk - Little/No Shade

Easy to walk around, check out some historical buildings, and ponder what took place there. It's more of an area to stroll around though we didn't go far out on the walk, so not sure what lie ahead over the next hills. But nice leisurely walk. We did 1.5 mile loop. But there's little to no shade so in summer it's hot and be careful of too much sun.
