Greatly enjoyed this hike -- there is something special about hiking in the rain! Wonderful time of worship and meditation. I was continually serenaded by the staccato cadence of the raindrops on the forest canopy and floor along with the avain, frog, and insect choirs. Passarines, crows, and woodpeckers were quite busy today. No grackles in this forest! (There were plenty last week in Texas.)
Mimosa trees were in full bloom and perfume. Brings back so many childhood memories.
