August 2011 Hike

This weekend’s hike to Rocky Glen continued to show how the area changes over the seasons.  The lack of plentiful rain has slowed the creek to a stop about half way between the rocks and Kickapoo Creek.  It hasn’t stopped the growth of underbrush as the stinging nettle became yet another reason to wear long pants.  Without any defined trails following the creek yet, wearing the proper hiking boots and pants keeps the hike a pleasant experience.  There is a newly fallen tree that has been freed from its perch along the south rim that is now draped across the creek. Our next hike in September will surely be an exciting one as it will be under a full moon.  See our calendar for details. Enjoy the pictures!
