We were late getting out and so stayed close to home, and went to a favorite loop hike of ours!  Not much new and exciting about this hike, except for the wonderful fresh air, beautiful trees, and surprisingly lack of mosquitoes! 🙂  Oh, and there were some gorgeous Irises, but they are now past peak and starting to wilt.

Today, the forecast was for a 30% chance of rain with a temperature in the low 60’s.  This isn’t the weather we experienced, and it was quite a surprise.  It turned out that the temperature was cool, in the low 50’s and it rained about 80% of the time.  This normally isn’t a big deal except that we left our rain pants, and hat at home, to save weight!  Thankfully, the rain never came down hard, but it was persistent.

A very nice day!
