Autumn is the Best Time for a Trail Run

Autumn is the best.  The weather is cool.  The fog is sometimes thick.  I can see red crawdads in the streams.  Blue Herons have returned and swoop through the sky with their giant wingspans.  Rattlesnakes hide.  The leaves turn color.  Ferns sprout a light lovely green, and mushrooms push up along the trails.  And rain comes down in California just enough to get the creeks flowing good again.

Such was today’s morning autumn run.

    1. Green is starting to sprout up all over Hank. Though they're not green, I particularly like looking at the different mushrooms.

  4. The photos are incredible. I'm going to make a deal with myself to do some of my long runs off the road and on the trails this winter and spring. This amazing stuff is too close.
