10/5/16 Branch Lake


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

  1. I like the autumn colors of the ferns, they are unique. Kelley certainly is determined to get in the water, dodging those big rocks! The fungi are so pretty.

    1. Thanks for your comments- the ferns seem more colorful than usual - the trees are still mostly green

  2. I always enjoy the fungi in the autumn--so many varieties popping up.
    Hope you've had a great month. I'll be catching up on posts slowly. Vacation is over!
    :D

    1. Hope you had a good one- it has cooled down here to normal fall temps and lots of sun- problem is we still need rain badly
