7/27/13 City Forest
Finally stopped raining- it rained continually the whole day yesterday and part of the night. We parked at the end of Kittredge Rd. and walked down to the beaver pond ( Kelley then gets the pond at the end of the hike too) and then took the West Trail to it's end. Back on the rail bed to an unnamed trail that took us back to the West Trail to make our loop. Lots of water for Kelly to get into but we met few people. The deer flies were a lot less numerous and perhaps are about through their season.
Lots of wee creatures about, some of which I managed to get in focus.
This is a tiny hoverfly. The whole blossom it is in the center of was only about an inch across.
Still quite of few of the moths still about
Turned out to be a pleasant 1 3/4 hours even though things were pretty wet and I ended up with pants soaked to above the knees. Kelley was happy to be out after spending most of yesterday in the house.
