With no rain in the forecast, it was a nice day to go for a hike. I chose to do my little known trail into the park up into Frey Canyon. Early on the trail crosses the stream bed which is normally dry. You can see the crossing up ahead in this photo.
But once there it was impossible to cross without getting wet. Boulder hopping was out of the question. The rocks were wet, covered with moss and slicker than snot on a glass door knob. It was guaranteed I'd slip, lose my footing and "splash" dunking the camera into the water.
I went up further to find a narrower spot with no luck. One can go only so far on this side for the canyon wall comes right down to the stream bed. This is why the trail crosses back a ways.
Like this is only 4 or 5 feet across.
The rocks are slippery, and there is no room to get a running start to leap across.
The trail is right there too! So tantalizing close but just a wee bit too far.
Quite frustrating as you can imagine.
So I walked back to the car and went to another trail on the other side of the park.
This is my first post on the new computer doing outdoor "nature" pictures. They look pretty good to me so I didn't do anything to them with my photo program. Not that I ever do much of anything to my pictures anyway, but now it makes me wonder if I was messing up photos in the past which were already decent pictures to begin with straight out of the camera.
