3 July 2010 Bent Run Falls and Morrison

We hiked Bent Run with the dogs to find a few of the new high-terrain caches in the area. The falls sounded great, but the lack of rain this summer has reduced the flow to a minimum.

The mountain laurel was well past its prime, but I was glad to be able to see a few blossoms this year. Timing's everything.

The cross country trail at Morrison doesn't see a lot of visitors, but it does stretch all the way back to the Rimrock area. It's pleasant and quiet. I know the mass of ferns is a sign of too much deer browsing, but I still love the smell of these stretches of woods in mid-summer.
