Winter Solstice Hike in Lambertville, Dry Run Creek Trail
Saturday was the Winter Solstice, which marks the beginning of Winter, but also the lengthening of the days. From now on, our world is getting brighter, lighter, and eventually, warmer. What better way to celebrate the occasion than with a beautiful hike outdoors!
We are having an unusual warm spell, with temperatures in the low sixties. However, we recently had a couple of large snowstorms, so the trails were covered with snow and sometimes ice. Lovely patterns of melting ice bordered the creek.
A nice little surprise tucked away, apparently a bench made by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
A pretty creek wound through the park.
It was fun to hike on snow covered trails in weather warm enough for T-shirts!
