That was a beautiful hike. Just as the sun was on its way down. 🙂
If you get out of work late on a Friday evening, you only have so much time for a sunset hike. My plan at Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve was to make it to the waterfall, then to hit the Scenic Overlook before the sun went down and the park was closed. I made it. 🙂
By the time I reached the scenic overlook at Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, the storm clouds were building. Lucky for me, I snapped some photos, hung out with a friendly rabbit, and made it back to the car just before the storm. Good timing, indeed!
My goal today at Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve was to see the waterfall. I thought it would be raging with all the rain we have had recently, and it did not disappoint. The downside was that the crossings for Bee Creek were also raging and the hiking conditions were muddy in places. A good test for my hiking boots. 🙂
Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve advertises that it has 2.5 miles of trails. I did the outside loop this evening and finished just before a heavy downpour. I trekked over to view the waterfall, then headed to take in the scenic views. Overall, a nice quick hike.
