Report to Hikers: New Year’s morning along Six Mile Creek

Tailgate party 019

Hello Hikers!

It’s no secret I sometimes stage photos and try to make them look candid  —  but this one really was spontaneous, the hikers’ idea, not mine  —  I hope we’re all going into 2015 in pretty good spirits ….

Curious who fell into the little stream this year while trying to jump across it?

no one  —  but a number of hikers chose to follow Tiger up the alternative path rather than give the stream a try

This was a perfect morning to see this great walk at its wintery best, not too cold, not windy in the woods, slightly sunny
