Another rainy day today. The best thing to do on a rainy day is to get out there and enjoy it as the forest is real different when it’s raining. I put on my heavy rain gear and fueled up a quad runner and went for it.
When I was younger we’d be out there as kids without even a rain coat as they didn’t used to make much in the way of good rain gear. But as long as you have a good warm place to come back to it was no problem. And kids move around a lot so it was easy to stay warm. If you got real wet, you just went home and changed clothes, but usually we just dried out enough by playing in the rain, unless it was really coming down.
Actually, the harder it rains the more interesting the forest was with water running everywhere, We got wet playing in the creeks too.
Ride in the rain
Anyway, by the time I got it going, the rain had slowed down quite a bit.
Waterfall and a new camera
Since the rain has slowed a bit, the waterfall wasn’t as big as I expected. I’ve noticed the last two times I’ve taken pictures of the fall, the water wasn’t very sharp for some reason, so when I got home I ordered up a new camera to replace the old one. I must of dropped the old one too many times.
I was headed on over to pick up a couple of my trail cams that had been out there for a couple weeks now.
From there, I headed on back home. Just as I made it home the rain picked up real good which would of been a better time to be out there, but I was done for the day.
I had about 400 pictures on each trail cam I picked up, a lot of it was just rain.
I had deer, skunks, foxes, possums, squirrels, a coyote and this cat.
Lots of rain
It’s been raining cats and dogs for the last 6 hours. I wonder where that old saying originated from? I’d like to see the waterfall now, but I think I’m in for the night. :O)
