We had a beautiful day today. Temperatures in the mid 50s and bright blue, sunny skies. After all of the time we have spent below zero lately, the air felt downright balmy.
I had heard about the coming weekend warmup on Tuesday and at that point decided that I didn’t care how slushy and muddy it was going to be we were going to get out and enjoy it. Riley, Carson and I headed for one of our favorite hiking spots, Waterfall Glen in Darien. Camera in hand, of course.
Yes, it was muddy and slushy but worth it. Because of all of the snow melt the waterfall was running stronger than we had ever seen it. It was mostly a muddy mess, but still very relaxing. We explored for a bit and managed to stay fairly clean. Until on the way back to the car when Riley fell over into a giant mud puddle. I knew that we weren’t going to get out of there clean and Riley wanted to make sure I was right about that. Oh well, mud washes off easily.
