We had a very enjoyable hike at Harvey Bear County Park. It WAS muddy though. It was very slippery going up the hill and any slightly drier mud stuck to the soles of our boots. It felt like we were like walking on stilts.
The sun broke through as we got just a quarter of the way up the hill.
There were many plants that looked like mules ears but were much shorter and smaller and with leaves that were less visible. Higher up we came across poppies with unusual colors. There were the usual orange ones, some yellow, but also some colored like a blood orange and some that were white.
