On a beautiful cool morning my wife and I took a walk on the Red Cedar State Trail. There were large numbers of flowers out along the Trail. The Bloodroot and the Pussy Willows were just about done blooming. It was early in the morning and the Bloodroot had not opened yet.

It rained most of the morning and was still raining in the afternoon. We finally decided we need to get out. I made and purchased some new rain gear and was anxious to try it out so we decided to drive down the the Trail and see what was happening. Things didn’t go well. When I arrived I realized that the plastic cover for the camera that I designed was not in the pack that I brought. It was still in the pack at home. I had purchased a new pair of rain pants that should allow me to put them on without taking my shoes off. I thought I would put them on at the trail head and see how things went. Unfortunately I had grabbed my old rain pants and couldn’t get them on over my boots. So much for testing my rain gear.

We were amazed at the number of flowers out along the trail. Most of them are weeks ahead of schedule.
