Arcadia, Hudson, and Tripp Trails

5.91 miles   ★★★★

the forecast for today was mostly cloudy. well, it was mostly rainy, but that did not deter the “usual suspects.” the original plan was to walk the entire 7-mile arcadia trail, but we decided, because it was raining, to cut it short. then we decided it was ending too soon, so we extended it. go figger. great day for me because BLACK TRUMPETS!!!

yes, it was raining. yes, we are hardcore.

this was moments before i scooped this one, and a mess more, up. i was very excited to find these, finally, because the only other time i’d seen them was before i knew they were edible. i’ve been looking ever since. this is my haul…

they don’t look like much, do they? i will totally do a post once i’ve tried them, but it won’t be tonight, as i’m going to dinner for my anniversary.

this hike is in arcadia wildlife refuge (don’t forget, hikers, to wear blaze orange now through april, as it’s hunting season). i’ve done portions of this hike several times before.
