New Year's Day 2008 - Hike at Clear Creek

What may be the start of a new tradition, I went on a New Year's Day hike at Clear Creek Metro Park. It's the park that is farthest away, but I wish it was much closer. This was an organized, off trail hike.

About 30 people showed up. (I'm lousy at estimating)

A gorge that is in a usually off limits area. The off trail hikes are worth it just to go places you can't usually go.

Trees that are likely diseased.

The snow was an added bonus!

Husband went on a different trail - his pics are here.
