We've arrived at that time of year where sunglasses are recommended for the morning walk.
Of course, since it's the gulch, I had to ditch the sunglasses after a few minutes because it was pretty dark once I got down to the Rusty Car Trail, which seems like it's becoming more overgrown than last year. I should check my old photos.
The mushrooms are loving the early, wet spring.
My mission for the day was to explore the Northwest portion of the gulch. There are lots of trails and lots of ways out, but it'd been a while since I'd walked around the area without just being on my way in or out. It was a fun walk, but of course with the starting point being up top, there wasn't as much climbing.

There's one way out that's been flooded for ages now, and it was cool to discover today that there's a new trail to make up for that! It's still new and narrow, so my feet got pretty wet, but it's a cool find.
It's got a lot of these funky things like down at the river. I dig 'em.
Too much sunnnnnnn, ugh.
At least the view of Mt. Baker is nice when it's clear out.
Today's the last day of my mostly-lazy four-day weekend. I'm yawning right now just thinking about Monday.
