Sunday breathing spaces
An enjoyable 3 mile walk in the mountains on a trail that lent itself to picture taking and fresh air. Several trees in the area were burned years ago but still stand tall with their burned bark and stark white/gray tree trunks. We ran into a few hikers and a small group walking their bikes up the hill. Not only was the main access road filled with rocks but it also went uphill and was not conducive to casual biking. Now at this particular stretch I was so focused on why the trail was wet when the river didn't run through this part that I totally missed this snake. Yikes.
