On Saturday morning Peter and I explored the Homesite Creek trails. This looping hike is just a few minutes up the highway from where we live.

You can’t really complain about the rain when it means you get to live in the middle of such green lushness.

A fallen tree seems to have diverted the creek a bit. That or the tree pictured below has grown out of the creek.

The double falls reminded me a bit of Niagara Falls. On a much, much smaller scale of course.

Old-growth stumps with springboard notches. Slain giants.

Mushrooms are weird. But cool.

Every time I go hiking I am so thankful for my $15 hiking boots. One of the best thrift store finds ever.
