An overcast day is perfect to for a hike close to home. Not only was the light diffused and temperatures cool, but the recent rain and persistent fog brought out the colors of nature beautifully and beaded plants with dew.
Due to the weather not being as sunny as usual, the trails were quiet except for a few visitors. Fresh air, solitude, silence, and cool temperatures? A wonderful way to start the day!
This immensely tranquil stream passes through the trail, though a small side path takes you along it for more serene and photogenic views. The sound of running water is so relaxing, especially when you don’t accidentally startle any predatory wildlife. (Although I did have the pleasure of seeing a gorgeous bobcat on the hunt last week.)
Let’s enjoy nature, rain or shine, and not be afraid to wonder off the beaten path once in a while. (So long as we can find our way back.)
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
