Dan's Outside

I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…

Another Spring, uh, Winter Hike

Today’s hike was at one of the usual places, Calero County Park, where I mostly spent a couple hours off of the trails investigating and photographing oak trees on one large ridge. It was a beautiful morning, but in a slightly worrisome and perverse way. It really should be raining now, and the trail should be muddy. Instead it was brilliantly sunny, relatively warm, the ground was dry, and I didn’t seen any running water in any of the creeks or streams. After two previous years of below normal precipitation, this is not the kind of day we need right now.

  1. I did a little hike with a friend at Henry Coe on Saturday hiking from the Hunting Hollow entrance up to the top of WIllson Peak and back. The little stream that runs along Hunting Hollow Road and all the ponds that we encountered were bone dry. There was no water at all. It was a beautiful day but the creek and ponds should be full this time of year. This is bad. I keep hoping we will get rain and I don’t see any coming. This is bad.
