9/22/15 DeMeritt Forest


Cool ( 50's when we started) and overcast. I didn't feel like a long drive so we headed for the forest.

The Logan Rd. start still looks like summer.


This small stream has dwindled to a large puddle.


Since it's been so dry, we decide to try the Green trail which is usually quite wet. Today it was a bit overgrown


 but Kelley managed to find a puddle to lie down in


Some fungi - few wildflowers about now.


We met a nice woman and her large dog Rosie ( a bullmastiff )  and chatted a bit about hiking with dogs but otherwise we had the place to ourselves.

I really like this stand of trees and almost always photograph them, even though the pictures end up looking very similar.


Lagging behind - near the end of the hike.


We crossed the road and went down to the Stillwater.








A nice outing. Kelley did well. 1  3/4 hours

    1. I have wondered about them - they do almost look planted but there are lots of big trees in there as the picture below them shows - different trail.
