Richard and I have walked this short nature trail in other years but I wanted to have a walk and chose this route. It is located at the end of the campground and actually the easiest of the three walks that are indicated on the board at the head of the trail. As you know from past years I like to take pictures of the flowers that grow in these areas.
This is a flowering raspberry or thimble berry.
This is one of the spots along the trail that overlook the Lake. This rustic bench and potted geranium have been placed there in memory of and individual. I took the time to sit and adjust my leg before continuing on our leisurely walk.
This was a little of the beaten track and meant I had to negotiate some challenging, for me, rock clambering. Richard left me to find my own footing which worked out a lot better than the last time we traversed this section in 2008 when he suggested where I should place my hiking poles and feet. Once at the clearing Richard found this flower for me (I don't know it's name).
I was pleased with myself accomplishing the extra side trips that were a bit more of a challenge than just the nature walk which is graveled for ease of walking. I'm no where near in the condition I was in in 2008 when we did quite a bit of hiking in this area.
I enjoyed our walk and the rain kept away for most of the day.
