How lucky can I be to live so close to such a beautiful trail?
The landscape is spectacular. Every day, every season, it looks different. Today was a late fall/early winter day. The snow on the trail was like a soft cushion. The temperature was in the low 40's which was quite pleasant for a day in December. The sky was partly cloudy, sometimes a dull gray, sometimes a brilliant blue.
Dogs are hikers too
The sun shines from the west in the afternoon on to the eastern rock formations. Usually I walk this trail earlier in the day, then it's the reverse.
It was a little over three miles round trip
A bridge to somewhere
The grass dried like this, it's not the wind blowing it
