Have I ever mentioned on this blog just how tired I am of rain? No? Well then I’ll tell you now: I am really tired of all of this rain we have been getting. The soil is so saturated water is just sitting on the surface. Luckily we live on a slight slope, so the puddles are just in the low areas.
Every morning for the last couple of weeks I have been walking the trail loop after breakfast. There are some low muddy spots where I have to splash through puddles, but this morning there were puddles where I had never seen them before.
Most of the leaves in the woods have now dropped. Because the surface of the trail is so irregular with a lot of tree roots, it is easy to trip or slip, so I have to spend a lot of my walk looking down to where I am stepping. The photo shows what I have mostly been seeing on my walk through the woods.
