mud walk 007

Rain, and so much mud. Irresistable mud. While my wife was visiting friends, my son and I packed a lunch and headed to the trails. It has been drizzling all morning. I figured the trails would be empty–and they were; perfect! We hiked up to the top of the highest hill, then back to the gardens and rice patties. We walked in the mud like we were reading poetry–carefully, as to enjoy every bit. While we walked along the edge of a puddle, we found a couple Asian red belly toads, that was cool!

We took a break and ate our lunch: sandwiches, granola bars, an orange, and Cadbury’s chocolate. So much mud. Bad weather can be so perfect.
