Francis Carter, Again

3.51 miles   ★★★★½ today was a greatly reduced usual suspects hike… it was just 2 suspects today, on the ever pretty francis carter preserve. best part? even though we were there early, some unknown hiker or hikers were there before us, and broke all the spider webs on the trail! yay! thank you, unknown hiker […]
