In celebration of the end of a long hot spell, my hiking buddy and I set out on a hike on the Hill Canyon/Hawk Canyon loop trail. Both being photographers we move at a slow but steady pace so as not to miss any photo ops. The air was a buzz with so many dragonflies, some of which stopped long enough to strike a pose for us. The summer is fading to fall and many of the plants are now wearing their fall/winter shades of brown and rust. A few of the Sycamore trees are beginning to show their fall colors. At our rest stop we enjoyed our snack under the shade of an old oak tree and were treated to some bird songs. We lingered awhile at a spot at the edge of the stream, so relaxing to just close your eyes and listen to the water flowing by. We had a great hike and captured many photos to add to our story collection, we hope you enjoy a glimpse into the Hill Canyon trail.
