8/23/14 DeMeritt Forest

Mix of sun and clouds and 70's- and no deer flies. We also managed, for the first time, to navigate the entire hike without getting off track- even the Black Trails. On a less positive note, I was trying some new camera settings and screwed up most of my pictures.

We started from the Logan Rd. entrance and followed the route marked. One picture - from the Red Trail

Some of the trails were still muddy, especially the White but we managed to get through it with only muddy boots and pants.

After the trails we crossed the road to the Stillwater for lunch and a swim for Kelley

Beside the river there are small cove-like areas of water

Kelley helped with these. The water was mirror smooth as I was about to shoot some reflections and then she jumped in.

Other than the photo missteps it was a good hike. We especially appreciated the lack of deer flies and Kelley was able to find water to get into. We only met two people. 2  1/4 hours


  1. Hopefully those dang deer flies have spent themselves..

    1. Hi penbayman- let's hope so- I don't think i have seen them so numerous

  2. It was nice to meet you this morning. I'm sorry I don't comment often, but it is always nice to see the pictures of beauty and wonder which you add to the internet - and to get updates on Kelley!

    1. It was nice to chat with you too. It was pleasant to be recognized. Thanks for commenting. I will also check out your blog
