Whipple Creek Regional Park Hike

Hike Distance: 7.2 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1857.7 miles

Elevation Gain: 887 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 239309 feet

Such nasty weather filled with wind and rain.  How lucky can I get to be in such awful weather, but enjoying myself immensely!  When I arrived at the parking area I was greeted by a young woman whose battery had died.  I gladly gave her a jump and suggested she go to The Battery Exchange for a new battery, as their service is excellent and the prices reasonable.

I soon headed out into the park but was a bit worried about the winds, and how the tops of the trees swayed.   I just dismissed the possibility of a tree or limb falling on we and decided I was here for the duration.  This hike was like others I’ve done here, going in a counterclockwise direction around the trail system.

At first there were only a few drops of rain but it increased to a constant downfall as the day progressed.  I was glad that the wind died down as the day progressed, and I felt a bit safer.  The best part about the hike was the mood there, and it felt like I was in the dark forest with creatures I couldn’t see.  It really didn’t bother me, much, although I still look around and am more alert.  I only saw one trail runner the entire day. 🙂   Such a great day to be in the fresh air!
