A hot and humid day that took the energy out of me. I tried staying hydrated but didn’t do a great job of it. I ended up drinking quite a bit of fluids when I got home!
It was more crowded than usual for a weekday but the trail system was empty. I don’t blame people for being around the lake where it was a bit cooler. Most of the people were fishing from the shore but there were plenty of boats on the lake.
The foliage was beautiful and I felt enveloped by the forest! I ended up trimming a few branches that were draped across the trail. A very lovely day to be outside and in the fresh air.
