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.

7/6/13 City Forest

The oppressive  heat and humidity continue. Low 90's predicted again today so we got our two hours in early at the forest. There were a few other people and dogs for Kelley to greet and lots of water for her to cool off. The deer flies were the biggest problem for her. I have some sticky strips that trap them and they don't usually bother her too much but today they were after her and I was continually having to get them off her face.  It seems to bother me more than it does her- it bothers me a lot.

Damselfly


Milkweed


Red clover


This poor thing was rather beat up and one wonders how it manages to still fly



There were a lot of  dragonflies with this pattern






Bug love


This tiny butterfly ( less than an inch high) would not let me get a good angle to get it's wings in focus



Wild Columbine
