A Trinity Forks chapter NPSOT pop-up field trip was scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 10th. And since the rain had occurred earlier in the week I needed to make sure we could cross the creek. So on Thursday, Feb. 8th, Jeanne and I went to check it out. The day was perfect, cool but sunny. What…

Last night we got 1.15″ of rain in Bonham State Park. Thankfully no hail or high winds. However with this turn of event, we decided to change our plans. The new plan for the day was to walk a trail at the park in the morning. This is what happens when you OD on three…
