I have been exploring my new hometown any free chance I get. I found a great, secluded, trail last week. What made it so neat was, in the 1409 ft elevation drop, I went through three distinctly different climate zones. In one, there was an abrupt inversion layer (a layer of warm air on top of a layer of cooler air). I think next time I do this hike, I may bring some bear spray, or a gun. I was told, after the fact, this trail is notorious for bears (due to the plants full of berries). Whoops! None-the-less, it was a beautiful hike!
