Sunny and 50's - a beautiful day. We rarely meet anyone here but today near the start we met two separate women each with a dog and that made Kelley happy .
Picked this hike because of sure water and Kelley found a small stream even before we got to the lake
Few flowers so the ferns stood out today
Branch Lake has a rocky shore and lots of brush, making it a challenge for Kelley to get to the water.
Working her way between the rocks
Another section of shore
with easier access
I also found some interesting fungi
These were tiny, the largest being about 1/4 inch across
A nice hike. Kelley was enthusiastic and did well. 1 1/2 hours
