The hike this week was way easier. Lots of up and down but, not straight up. Because summer has been extended this year, the forest is just starting to turn color. Am certain that when the first frost comes it will be instant color immediately after. These pictures were taken by one of the shutterbugs on the hike. You can barely see the creek through the trees. At the higher elevation, you can really see the devastation of what the swollen creek did in the spring flood.
