Hike: Gold Trail at Swayback TOLA, Monday, 1/2/2017, 11:00-12:40CST
Distance: 2.6 miles Difficulty: Easy Rating: 4/5
Conditions: Cloudy with rain. Temps in upper 60's. Light to moderate wind. Rain was intermittently heavy. Trails wet and muddy in spots.
Peaceful hike in the woods during mostly light rain event. It was good to see water in the swampy areas again. Passerines were busy but no larger wildlife observed. I cut the hike short due to increasing heavy rain and an approaching thunderstorm.
Conducted some light field testing of the OKC Falcon knife I received from Diane & Robert. The knife functions quite well. It is sturdy yet small enough to accomplish finer tasks. The sheath is adequate thought not the best design.
