Maxwell Falls

A nice clear-out-the-body-and-get-over-an-early-season-cold jog at Maxwell Falls, a local, hidden Forest Service gem.

Easy five miles on the trails around the Maxwell Falls parcel off Brook Forest Road. The trails were damp and tacky following a late afternoon rain shower. The sun peeked out a few times, brightening the trail and opening up the views here and there.  Maya enjoyed the creeks and the easy romp.

Can't tell a dog to not look down.

Saw this feller on the way home, standing about 30 yards from busy Evergreen Parkway.  His harem of cows was off to the right.
The bonus for this run is that I think it helped me finally kick the cold that's been hammering me since Monday.  Onwards!

  1. Funny, this is the second post this month I've read about that park. I've never been there but it looks great... on the list.

    That pup belongs in the movies. Very cute. Something about a voyage home across America with a horse, a pig and a rooster.

    Yeah, I'm not planning to quit my job and become a script writer.

    That's a heck of a buck.
