The weather on Friday was so beautiful that I decided to take the afternoon off from work and soak up some of the last warmth of the season. I stopped by the house, picked up Daphne and we drove over to Hartley Park for a hike in the woods. Many others had the same idea as the park was filled with college students, families with young kids, seniors and lots of dogs. The sun was high in the sky and a bit harsh for photos, but I brought my camera anyway.
A few remaining wild flowers bloomed along the trails. I was only able to identify a few.
I would like to go back and see the fall colors this weekend at the highest point of the trails if the weather cooperates. High temperatures will only be in the low 40’s. As long as it doesn’t rain, it might be worth it. Check out photos from last year’s October hike in Hartley here.
