You can pick the day on which you might hike but you can’t pick the weather. Suck was the case when I left for a Hike at Lost Valley Conservation Area. The rain was not heavy but enough to warrant the use of a poncho. It gave me a good chance to test out my USGI poncho which worked out well. I saw numerous deer as well as items such as fire hydrants left abandoned in the wilderness, remnants of an age when the area was used as a munitions plant for the US government. It hosts 11 miles of trail that is open to mountain bikers as well as hikers. The hike gave me an opportunity to dip into shooting some video.
