Wednesday we hiked in warm temperatures, almost too warm, but not terrible. It's just hard to go from cool to hot so quickly. We were on roads all day long. I know that probably sounds unpleasant, but it isn't really. The roads are little traveled, and you often get views, because the trees don't close everything in.
Can you guess that we walked over Walton Mountain? It was 1200 feet up, but the grade wasn't bad, and it turned out to be a really easy day at 8.2 miles. We were actually done by noon.
The day was hazy, so views were muted, but with a beauty of their own.
Two of my personal roadside favorites- yellow common buttercup and birds-eye speedwell.
We were not sorry to finish hiking quite early. We spent part of the afternoon sitting in the cars waiting out a downpour.
But the evening cleared up, and the geese brought their brand new babies out for a first swim.
OK- gotta head to work fast! Bye.
