9/20/16 Redman Beach


We just had a couple of rainy days and walked around the hood. Not enough rain to do much good- just enough to mess up the day.

This morning is upper 60', cloudy, and fog but supposed to clear. Another trail with sure water for Kelley, at least at Donnell Pond.

Trail head with boulders to bar ATVs



No wildflowers but some interesting ferns




 About halfway to the pond there is a stream that is usually  a bit of a challenge for me as I  have to balance on logs to cross it. Today I could walk across.


But there was enough pooled water for Kelley to get wet


There were some interesting fungi




When you come out of the woods at the pond it is at one of the 4 or 5 campsites


Into the pond


We walked along the beach with Kelley mostly walking in the water

Redman Beach  9-20-16


Another campsite




About where we turned back


Kelley was excited when we got back to the stream




More ferns




A nice hike. It didn't clear 'till we got home and we got a few sprinkles but it stayed comfortable. Kelley did well and seemed more willing to jump over things she might have gone around. We have hiked this trail many times and I don't remember ever meeting anyone on the trail. Sometimes there would be a few people camping ( none today) but they mostly come across the pond by boat or canoe rather than tote things through the woods. 2 1/2 hours
