Today's hike revealed a lot of changes from just a few days ago. Spring is in the air. Small yellow flowers are beginning to carpet the meadows. The grasses seem greener. Trails are once again dry. The mud and slop is pretty much all gone. The few water courses remaining across trails are now mangaeable without getting wet or muddy up to your ankles. The most noticable change though are the lizards. The warm sun has everyone out and about scurrying within the rocks and beneath dry leaves. Even this humble hiker was able to leave his usual flannel shirt behind.
