Spring in October?

October 25, 2010

The recent October rains have summoned forth new growth in the hills of Orange County; this image is from the intersection of Mountain Goat and Bumblebee trails in Santiago Oaks Regional Park last week.

OC Parks has a Facebook page, and when I checked in on Oct. 22, I found out that the trails at Santiago Oaks were dry enough for the park to re-open (wet trails are susceptible to damage, so the parks close after rain).

I did find a puddle or two, though.

One of the many pleasures of barefooting on trails is the constant change in texture–right now there’s a wonderful dampness to the clay sections that makes running an earth-scented, spongy delight.
