Distance: 2 miles Rating: 4/5
Conditions: Misting rain. Trails wet/muddy from recent rains. Mid to upper 50s. Calm. No one else on trails.
Short hike due to weather (misting rain with more coming) and lateness of morning. Many gray squirrels busy scampering around (as they often do). Several vocal crows could be heard as I hiked into the park. The creeks were swollen from the recent rains and the babble and gurgle of the rushing water was comforting. Low lying areas were swampy -- I appreciated my Goretex hikers!
Tried out my new "cheapo" videocam. This piece of gear is for those trail occasions when weather is inclement or conditions might harm my digitalSLR. The quality of video is okay (not outstanding) (as you can see below), but then it was only $20.00!
Be sure to get out as much as you can and "Be Still"... Observe GOD's hand at work all around you. You will be glad you did.
