Sunday Dec 18

Monkey Run Natural Area, north side of Fall Creek

Great atmospheric morning  —  raining (a bit hard), ice, slush and puddles on the path, mist, fog and gloomy brooding woods

One hiker (Brenda) turned back early because one of her dogs began to shiver  —  meanwhile, three other hikers who arrived late caught up with us.  The rain turned to sleet

I loved the lighting out in the big fields
