For months I have been anticipating a kayak trip planned for this weekend, but once the forecast was revised to include snow, that all went to the wayside. The weather today wasn’t terribly appropriate for kayaking, but it was pretty much ideal for hiking!
Initially I planned to go to Richland Creek Wilderness, an allegedly scenic but very difficult to reach place that’s been on my “must visit list” for quite some time. But going alone, I opted for something a little less extreme after having a dream about getting mauled by a bear in one of the most remote and inaccessible areas in this part of the country.
So I opted for nearby Big Sugar Creek State Park. I really like this small park. It only has one trail, but it’s neat, and most of it runs along side small tributaries of Big Sugar.
