The great thing about hiking is the natural curiosity to keep going just to discover whats around the next bend in the trail!
Spotted this beautiful bed of purple vetch along the trail! Love the symmetry of the leaves!
Kept waiting for this little guy to open his wings, but he never did! Still the faint back lighting is nice!
For some reason, I was thinking the pond would be a little bigger.... Still we had a nice picnic before heading back to the trailhead.
