A Day At William O’Brien

Unused Bench

Unused Bench

I hiked yesterday on the Riverside Trail in William O’Brien State Park.  I live only 20 miles from the park but haven’t been there in years, decades even.

It was well below zero with an even lower wind chill.  (I guess wind chills are always “even lower”.)  I saw no one on the trails.  I saw two gray squirrels, one mouse or vole, and few crows.  That is all.  I felt very good about braving the bitter cold and remaining reasonably comfortable – I was dressed for the weather complete with long underwear and a balaclava.  In one spot on the ice of a side channel of the river out of the wind and in full sun, I was actually quite snug.  My camera worked well in spite of the cold.  The only effect was that my lens’s zoom mechanism was stiff.
