Late Dusk Hike at Radnor Lake: Swamp Seating

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments · deer, Radnor Lake

Wednesday, March 26, 2008 I very nearly blew off today‚Äôs hike at Radnor Lake. My early afternoon was a little rough; I really felt like withdrawing from the world and getting lost in a book. I started to read a bit, and the next thing I knew it was around 4:15pm and I was waking […]

Goose Builds Nest at Spillway Bridge

March 25th, 2008 · 6 Comments · canada goose, flowers, photography, Radnor Lake

Wow, the next few weeks are going to be fascinating — assuming things go swimmingly for the pair of Canada geese that built their nest on Monday (March 24) afternoon and into the evening.

March 14th, 2008 · No Comments · friends, Radnor Lake

Tracy and I have been friends for a while, and a few months ago — early fall or so, when the weather was still very pleasant for hiking — we tried to find a convenient time to meet at Radnor, but we couldn’t. Winter came, and we sort of let the whole “hey, let’s go […]

Forgot My Boots

March 11th, 2008 · No Comments · Radnor Lake

Unbelievable! Monday afternoon is beautiful, see? So heading to Radnor is a no-brainer. I take plenty of time to prepare for the hike: I chill the water for my Camelbak hydration system; I’m careful to transfer my wallet, camera, phone, etc. from my other backpack to the Camelbak; I don my moisture-wicking hiking gear; and […]

South Cove Double Back

March 5th, 2008 · No Comments · Radnor Lake

Lately, to save time, I’ve taken to doing a partial hike at Radnor Lake that still requires the climbing of two ridges — just as if I’d hiked the entire 4.5-mile loop. I call this hike the South Cove Double Back: all of it takes place on the south cove trail and I double back […]

Long-Awaited Radnor Hike with Jim Arnett

March 1st, 2008 · 1 Comment · books, friends, gear, Radnor Lake, washington

After months of planning, the day finally arrived: a scheduled Radnor Lake jaunt with dear old friend Jim Arnett (who is a part-time adventurer; be sure to read about his Washington Cascades adventures ). It had been raining off and on most of the morning, but there seemed to be quite a few breaks in […]
