One of my favorite regular hikes is Billy Goat Trail at dawn on the weekends in Maryland. For a few weeks, the trail has been closed due to snow melt. However, you are able to still do the Towpath. Yesterday, the trail was open and glorious. I wanted to share a few pictures of the high water from the last couple weeks. I am making plans for a couple of great hikes this year, including a hiking and travel blog to Alaska where I have to give a speech. First, I hope to do my Spring hike on Old Rag Mountain in the coming weeks.
One of my hikes started out with a standoff between two deer who wanted to use the access bridge to the towpath. Well, it wasn’t much of a standoff. They took little notice of me.
The flooding was spectacular and the trail now has new trees balanced on the rocks. In the last few weeks, the wood frogs have been in an early mating season which added a cacophony of background music to the hike.
