 Rain!!!
So if I go hiking tomorrow should I avoid trails with water crossings?! :D East Branch is up to 5000 cfs. Far cry from the 30,000 of Irene but it's not done raining yet and Joquine is on the way next week. Been very dry so most of it will probably run right off the hard ground too. Should we play a squares game on which, if any, trails get washed out??

I think it's time to bring back Cracky's paddling list.

Where is Justin anyway?

No. Buy a Hike Safe card and hike away.

Rainy days are a good time to start your bushwhacking lists.

Unfortunately I burned those last time I got caught camping in the rain.

 Re: Rain!!!
There were some deep puddles between The Great City of Lawrence and the Peabody District Court yesterday. I for one am happy that it came yesterday. Who wants to sit on the courthouse steps in gorgeous weather while your hiking partner is inside, serving on the jury? Prema hung around 'til nearly 2:30. Her services were not needed, but she was there long enough for her not to be called for the next three years. We did see some pretty foliage in Middleton along 114. And a guy waiting there on other business talked about local places he takes his daughters (mostly Harold Parker State Forest). Made me thing of GG.

We were thinking about doing Ann or Shannon this weekend, but the weather isn't looking great, so maybe we'll try out a trail on the Forest Society’s Forest Reservation Challenge list. https://www.forestsociety.org/challenge

The weather I'm seeing is actually looking pretty good. Foliage is popping, cool crisp air with the smell of fall in it... the very best three or four weeks of the year to hike IMO. Then gimme winter!

But that challenge looks like quite the undertaking. I've visited a lot of their properties and love most of them but didn't take selfies! :D Driving all over the state to visit their smaller forests and preserves probably isn't going to happen for me. But you never know. I guess I could always add one on after bigger hikes or visit a few in a day.

Fingers crossed for Sunday. Pawtuckaway was still very green last week and hiking in fall colors is pretty special. What are some other people's plans for the possibly cloudy weekend?

Leaving the kids with the grandparents and going for a day out with my wife Sunday. Have a pretty good idea where, and there will be a hike worked in somewhere, but I'll check the weather and foliage trackers and webcams from the Adirondacks to Acadia before figuring out exactly where.

Sun in the Whites. Rain down here at home. No mystery where I'm going :)
