Whipple Creek Park Hike

Hike Distance: 7.4 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 511.3 miles

Elevation Gain: 3868 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 68685 feet

I got out late but just kept winding around the trail system at Whipple Creek Park.  I’m trying out my running shoes as my ankles have been bothering me lately, and it actually felt better than using a much heavier boot!

The Trillium flowers are in full bloom and it was beautiful.  Older plants get increasingly lavender in color.  There were many hundreds of plants seen during the hike.  It’s so nice to see the leaves coming out and flowers, and spring is a welcome season!

For the second hike I’m trying out my new Panasonic G85 camera.  So far I’m pleased with the sharpness and colors in the photos.  There’s a learning curve but I’m being patient.

Many people trail running and on horseback but not overcrowded!  A great day to be in the fresh air.
