This is a young one. I laid down on the ground to take this picture. It was cool and slightly damp.

There were more people, though not many, over at another section where there was a marked trail. In this section you can just roam at will. It would be easy to get lost.

People even get lost around here. I'm not sure how, but it happens.

Day Hikes

This forum is for posting pictures and/or telling stories about your day hikes. What is a day hike? For the purpose of this forum, I define it as a hike or long walk on trails or roads that are primarly for transport by something other than motor vehicles
