Late November Hike, Harrison Hills Park

With some astoundingly pleasant late-fall weather, and a need to walk off some of the great food we’ve had over the past couple of days, I grabbed a camera, jacket, mask (I anticipated running into others on this fine day), water, and headed up the road to Harrison Hills Park for a hike. I made my own loop out of parts of four different trails. Lots of nice views. I forgot to grab my collapsible hiking poles, so looked for a decent walking stick when I arrived. I found an OK one, but it gave up while helping me over a hole created when a tree fell. Then I found a wonderful piece of what I think is hemlock. Big and sturdy. I trimmed a couple nibs off and went on my way. Glad I found it when I did, too, as there were a couple more obstacles ahead where it came in especially handy.

Jonathan does a lot of stuff. If you ask Jenny, maybe he does too much stuff.
