Finding Trail Descriptions

So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

6/22/13 City Forest

Forecast is for rain so we stayed close to home. When we started there was high overcast and no wind - good conditions for pictures of creatures and flowers. Still plenty of water around for Kelley but fewer people and dogs than would be expected on a Saturday morning.

Down the hill and into the beaver pond

Red Clover

Wild Rose

Don't know these

Two versions of Crown Vetch

and a couple of insects

Don't know this either but appears to be some kind of grass

One last dip in the pond before we climb the hill to our car

We managed to get in most of the 1 and 3/4 hours without rain though it started sprinkling near the end.


  1. Are you using a macro lens for the closeups? Nice shots.. I know what you mean about the spam problem. It keeps getting worse..

  2. Thanks penbayman- either a 100 mm macro ( these pictures) or if I use the point and shoot a macro setting. Both can give good results- the 100 mm lets me keep my distance.

    Moderating has cut down the amount of stupid spam posts and they don't get on the blog.
