Francis Carter Preserve

3.12 miles, 2.4 mph

you know that thing where you get about 1-1/2 miles into a 3-mile hike and it starts to rain? yeah. got very wet. but it wasn’t cold, and there were no bugs, and i was still out in the woods with my “usual suspect” friends, so, win.

it was, in fact, raining when we all arrived at the francis carter preserve, but we sat in one of the cars and waited, and it stopped. yay! hiking after all.

the rain-darkened woods made the first tentative sightings of green really stand out. not sure what this plant is, but it’s bravely budding up.

whew!

whew!

and thank goodness someone stuck this stick in place to keep the GIANT BOULDER from rolling and crushing everything in its path. and they thoughtfully posted a warning, too.

you can find francis carter in the hikefinder.
