Conditions: Foggy to mostly cloudy. Comfortable temps. Light breeze. Trails wet from recent rains. A few muddy spots. Saw no mountain bikers today, only trail runners or hikers.
Quite enjoyable hike. The moderate fog made for a mysterious hike. Taking the Gold Trail was a treat. It hugs the ridge line and offers panoramic views of the lake. With winter at it's latest, and all of the leaves off the trees, one can see deep into the forest. Some features are visible this time of year that you would never notice otherwise.
Several birds, including some noisy crows, were busy about spring preparations. Woodland violets are blooming and I am getting spring-fever!
A good time of Worship and Reflection. Thank YOU, LORD, for life and life more abundantly.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
Psalms 19:1-4 NKJV
