Managed to get out and try some trails at a place I had heard good things about, but which I had not yet been able to experience for myself. They also have mountain bike trails out there – I will need to be checking those out as well.
I know this about myself, but I guess I sort of forget it as well. If there is a creek, or a stream, I am going in. Sometimes it is purposeful, sometimes it is falling in. But I am always going to wade in to test the waters.
I shot this picture while standing in the water – it was about 2 feet deep here and cold too. Of course I did not think to bring any dry socks with me…
I tried to let my shoes and socks dry out some but I still managed to have to hike out with squishy foot sounds. It was worth it.
On the hike, I had to stalk this bee to try and get a picture. I could not get any closer because the bee kept moving farther into the field of flowers.
The above picture is one of my favorite pictures I took during the hike.
I was amazed at the amount of frogs running across the trail. I did not see any snakes though. Maybe next time.
And this was the view from the trail heading back out. A perfect day it was.
