A Hike Before The Rain

When I checked the weather this morning, it said a high in the 50’s with rain after 5pm. At the start of the hike it was 46 degrees and mostly sunny. As I made my way through the park, it got cloudier and cloudier, with rain falling on me for the last 25 minutes.

With that said, it was still a beautiful hike for the 24th of February. It could have easily been 20-25 degrees colder with some type of frozen precipitation either falling or on the ground.

During the summer this stream was dry, even after rain storms.

Happy Hiking!!!

    Is this Pound Ridge Ward? As always, wonderful photos. You’ll be very proud of me. When I was at the conference in San Diego last week I did a cliff hike to watch the sunset from UC San Diego. I’m scared of heights, so I kept looking straight ahead and tried to ignore the “don’t fall to your death” signs (they didn’t say exactly that, but that’s what they meant). Then I walked for 8 hours at the San Diego zoo. True, we stopped a lot, and ate lunch for 30 minutes to stay hydrated in the heat there, but I never could have done those hills and that time before I lost weight. And ended this vacation with walking all over NYC yesterday. Walking in the concrete jungle.
    No beautiful city pictures to show for it, but lots of beautiful San Diego pics.

      Yes, that is ward pound ridge. That is my new go to hiking destination. I love the trails there! That is great to hear about the walking and the hike. You just have to get started. We should do a hike there sometime in the spring! I think that would be really cool.
