Day Hike at Busiek – The weather this weekend has been wonderful (especially considering it is still February). However, we’ve not had a chance to get away backpacking as we had commitments in town on Saturday. Today we went on a short hike at Busiek. 3 pictures

Branch of Brushy Creek off of the Pees Hollow Trail, Hercules Glades – This creek was mainly dry, but near where we camped there was some water. 3 pictures

This truck cab is a bit of a landmark on the trail – it’s just to the south of a spring – so there is water nearby. There is also a fire ring close by.

We had a little navigational problem getting started. The beginning of the western half of the Pees Hollow trail isn’t marked, and the trail isn’t much used. With all the fallen leaves we went past the start of the trail and had to backtrack. The views were well worth the effort.

A lucky shot just pointing the camera out of the window. As I drive to and from the Diocesan Office in Kansas City (three hours each way), one of the benefits is this view.

That moment when … you are reminded, too late, that some things were made before microwave ovens were common…
