Staying Properly Hydrated on the Wissahickon Trail

Hikers are always cautioned to remain "properly hydrated" on the trail, especially during summer when dehydration can be a problem. This didn't seem to be much of an issue today; at about the midpoint of our hike the heavens opened up and it poured. Really poured... Like a deluge... Of course, this didn't stop our fun, we still enjoyed the beautiful Wissahickon Park, the company of other hikers, and the sound of our wet boots sloshing through the puddles. It was also a perfect opportunity for me to test out my new "quick dry" hiking clothes; I am happy to report they seemed to work.

Zimmy waits patiently. Cockapoos love to hike, and they love attention.

Hikers smiling and waving. This doesn't seem staged at all, does it?

The afternoon was beautiful and clear. Here is the late afternoon sun on my rhododendrons.
