Photo Friday is being brought to you this week via Lis. I was having a very difficult time pulling the trigger on a choice for barren, so I gave her three photos to choose from, and this photo came out on top. You now know where to direct all complaints.
This was taken in Patapsco Valley State Park in Maryland, during a hike this past February. I love hiking in the winter because there are so few people around. I am a little worried about the bike ride I have planned for tomorrow because my gut is telling me that everyone and their mother will be on the trail. It reminds me of a saying I used to hear when I lived in Maine, "If you can't handle the wintah, ya don't deserve the summah." So true.
