Solstice celebration 2013

We celebrated the Solstice today by hiking part of Devil's fork trail.

Be prepared for multiple stream crossings with water occasionally above the ankle.

Mark's leg looks really long there! Looks like fun. We opted for the long way around the neighborhood and, my, wasn't it warm?

What kind of tree is that with leaves in December? Often our climates seem comparable (SW Ontario) but we definitely don't have those! And tomatoes aren't planted till late May.

Brandy --- Crazy warm! Too bad we can't count on that for every solstice celebration. :-)

Chris --- Those are rhododendrons --- the leaves are leathery and evergreen, although you can't tell from the photo. It was nice to celebrate the solstice with something green.
